It's still a little early for spring (and therefore plant growth) to be properly underway - in the UK we've had quite hard frosts overnight this last week, with lovely sunny days to compensate, not sure what your weather's been doing. The soil in the pot looks a little dry, so keep up with watering well if the weather is sunny and especially if it's windy ...

I'm in the UK, so not sure if what we call blackberries are the same as what you call blackberries. Anyway, are you sure you're pruning them properly? For my blackberries, every winter I cut to ground level all the canes that have fruited. The new canes that grow out of the ground this year will fruit next year. So these canes will be cut to the ground at ...

My experience with those palms tells me those frond bases will not be ready to be removed for quite some time -- many months. That matting around the trunk is tough stuff! But just for looks, I personally would carefully trim the already cut fronds closer to the trunk using sharp pruning shears, about where the frond just starts to widen a bit. Not much ...

If this was my tree, I would definitely prune it back pretty hard right around the end of spring/start of summer (when the plant growth is nearing maximum momentum for the year). It would be even better if you could place it outdoors in bright shade for a few months; it would really branch out. I'm just guessing but it also seems like maybe you don't rotate ...

Mine is over 20 years old, I have sprayed it with fungicide but it does not seem to make a difference.

Prune them right back (all stems) down to about 1-2 inches, and remove any stems which have signs of mould or rot completely, and remove any dead leaves left, plus any sitting on the soil. Turn them out of their pots, shake or take off as much soil as possible without causing too much root damage and repot into fresh potting soil, water. Keep them inside in ...

From your images, I have some difficulty to see good the plant, but: it seems you never pruned it, and I do not see if it is grafted or not. prune all branches lower then 1 meter. prune all suckers that growth from roots and soil you have 4 main branches )or more) going up, from the trunk. You need only one. Start cutting two (e.g. the two broken branches), ...
