Is it not possible to buy it online and freeze it, or grow it in an indoor pot?

the general concensus was that freezing bramble was fine .
as for young shoots , yes i've always been led to believe they are poisonous

Bramble, no problem, but I've had huge issues with people cutting back privet hedges I was relying on!
