Please can anyone give info/pictures on the Boysen plant I have been given one as a climber(well I think thats what it is,hence the picture request) and need to know about its care etc. Cheers, Masie.

On plant Rubus



Sorry I can't furnish pictures Masie, but perhaps the following will help. The Boysenberry is a scarcely-cultivated fruit, believed to be a hybrid of Loganberry, Raspberry and the Pacific Blackberry.
Treat it as a Blackberry. It is best grown on a trellis or along taut wires. Fully hardy it will reach an eventual height of 1.5m. It is happy in most growing conditions, and the large reddish-black fruits are rich in vitamins.
