Beware! birds love Blackberries, they then drop black birdlime everywhere, on cars and in the gaps in paving etc..
Just try removing them from there!

In the whole of the UK Blackberries are wild in the hedgerow. Largely in this country wild ones are rddilled with insects. Here we also grow thornless varieties.
If you have access to free ones they do make lovely wine, that matures well.
Incidently here in the UK we use Blackberry generally for garden varieties and the name Bramble for the wild types. There is a marked difference in size and flavours.
