Despite producing tasty fruit, the Blackberry bush is not a gardener’s friend. The plant was introduced to Australia by early European settlers, keen to grow a hardy shrub in order to demarcate their fields and keep their livestock in one place. However, the settlers underestimated just how invasive the plant was; and it soon became naturalized and widespread throughout the country. Today the blackberry plant is considered one of the worst invasive weeds in Australia, threatening everywhere from household gardens to native species in the outback.
The Blackberry plant owes its virility to the ‘weed tipping’ process carried out by its roots, allowing the plant to effectively colonise large areas in very little time, as well as to its fruit’s popularity amongst animals, through the droppings of which it can be spread over huge distances. However, one principal stands true when it comes to combating the Blackberry plant – if you kill the root, you kill the weed.
