Invasive Plant: Himalayan Blackberry - Their Audacity and Their Abatement

I came across an interesting and slightly startling thing this morning: a blackberry bush was growing inside my garage. I noticed this thorn’d beast when collecting my bicycle for the morning commute. I was shocked by the sheer insolence of this Himalayan export tunneling through my insulation.

How could (or why would) this terrible weed get through a concrete floor in order to grow in my nearly sunless (one small window), nutritionally-bare garage? Well, quite simply, the Himalayan blackberry is one tough cookie; hailing from Armenia, these raspberries from hell were first introduced from Europe in the late 1800s to the United States for their fruit and quickly got out of control, spreading the North America’s temperate region and finding true love in the Pacific Northwest.

And here we are, with this non-native, invasive berry dominating and destabilizing our once pristine riparian zones, forest paths, highway right-of-ways, and, in my case, garages. Additionally, I have a deep hatred for their thorns borne due to”Timmy’s First Bike Ride” (i.e. Timmy’s Ride of Terror) where I plunged into a black & green rat’s nest of blood, sweat, and tears.

Himalayan blackberry has been the focus of many ecological remediation projects in Oregon parks, and their removal is not an easy task: the plants resprouts from rhizomes and root crowns resiliently and over 13,000 seeds are produced per square meter (these seeds are capable of surviving several years in soil).

So, how do we confront this bitter invader without relying on nasty herbicides?

Bio-Control: The use of a fungus, blackberry leaf rust, has been shown to defoliate the Himalayan and limit root tipping. The fungi’s seasonal attack allows for a window of opportunity for removal and reintroduction of native plants.
And if you’d rather not shake parasites around property, why not try some goats? Goats will feast upon the blackberry plant (and most others) down to the base. Check out these local Oregon goat experts: Goat Rental NW and Goat Control-A-Weeding-Eating

Mechanical Removal: Get down, get dirty, and get cut up. Trim, dig up, bulldoze, backhoe. Just make sure you get rid of them all.
OR Hire someone else to do it: Most any of our profiled Landscaping companies are capable of Himalayan blackberry and other invasive species removal.

Field experiment was conducted at Research and Training Farm of Federal College of Horticulture Dadin Kowa, in the 2008 to 2009 cropping seasons, to evaluate the effect of compost extracts in suppressing Fusarium wilt on three tomato varieties. The treatments consisted of three compost extracts: poultry manure-based compost extract (PMCE), neem leaf-based compost extract (NLCE), cow dung-based compost extract (CDCE), a synthetic fungicide (TEAM®) and sterile distilled water serving as the control; and three tomato varieties (Roma VF, Duck Sekarat and UC 82B). The results showed that all tomato varieties were infected by the pathogen, but Roma VF was the least infected. Disease incidence and severity was significantly (P≤0.05) lower on tomato plants treated with the respective compost extract than on untreated plants.

A pequena tem um brilho próprio que ninguém tem igual, ao mesmo tempo que é doce e tranquila, é tempestade e trovão, tem olhar sedutor que tira meu controle, lábios que suplicam pelos meus beijos, toques que me causam calafrios, sensações, paixões, amor e calor.
Que seja uma mistura de doce e salgado, azedo e amargo, mas que nunca deixe de ser amor, e que não faça mal ao sentimento, que seja breve a distância, e seja eterna a presença, que tenha paixão, mas que seja completa de tesão. Sentir suas mãos caminhando e seus olhos me namorando, seus lábios sorrindo e seu abraço me cobrindo.
Que tenha fé, pra que permaneça bem perto, que o coração seja sempre a palavra chave, e o cuidado esteja sempre em primeiro lugar, que possamos pensar uma na outra de forma carinhosa e sublime, com noites de puro desejo. Sejas minha doce e sempre rainha, meu coração pede pelo seu, esteja sempre perto do meu.
