Blackberry pruning

[Post to this category]
From: Steven Gibbs

I put out 9 blackberry plants this spring and they have done really well. I was told to clip the top end of the berries when they reach about 5 feet tall. I did that, now it is putting laterals out (one to two per stem). Do I just let the laterals grow or do I trim them back after they get so long. Some are already 3 to 4 feet long. Thank you, Steve
