I would not  encourage it to grow faster than it needs or it will go lanky and fail,your lucky to get this far they are not easy to grow.I have grown them before but you have to be patient

Blackberries

I am guessing your asking about your blackberry bush,you could try growing it in  a pot and trailing it along a fence but i prefer the ground trained along a fence or wire.make sure you give it room and the right space and prune in spring.

Small Wildlife pond

Posted: 19/02/2013 at 19:06

Well,I would not of put it by a tree because come autumn the leaves go in the pond and stagnates the water unless you put a net over it.It must not have to much sun or a good filter is some times good but I do not use one.Make sure you leave a lip for frogs and toads to be able to climb out and plant oxygenating plants and marginal plants but not to many and with water lilies buy a small leaved one as a bigger variety will take over the pond .Do not have fish if you wish to have wild life in your pond.

I to have just dug up my jerusalem artichokes ,Lovely fried,but  although I dig them up each year  and I never re-place them they keep coming up not complaining but you will have to dig deep to get rid of the tubers.
