It is recommended that you prune them anytime between Autumn and Winter, once all fruiting has finished. Boysenberries are a variety of Blackberry (crossed with a Loganberry) and therefore, many of the same principals of pruning Blackberries, apply to pruningBoysenberries.

Do boysenberries spread? Boysenberries are planted when there are no more danger of frost in the garden. Plants are positioned 3-5 feet apart - they spread fast and easily, so if possible, give them plenty of room. Boysenberries canbe grown from the seeds or from the rooted cuttings (tip layering method).

How do you propagate boysenberries? Take the top of the cane growth, and bury approximately 5cms of it under the soil in the pot or bag. Make sure to press down firmly so that the soil is in contact with as much of the buried cane as possible. You will need to water the cane regularly to keep it moist so that roots are encouraged to grow.

Are boysenberries thornless? Thornless Varieties. Unless otherwise specified, all boysenberries have thorny canes. Thorny varieties are supposedly more cold-tolerant than thornless types, eventhough their published USDA hardiness zones are the same.
