The size of our plants when you purchase varies, they are usually small but grow really quickly once planted in the ground or in a reasonable size container.
They are two years old with established roots, treated for fungus, bacteria and disease.
Our cultivar of blackberry does not have thorns and grows quite erect before branching out.
A single Blackberry plant will produce abundant fruit. Blackberries are not only delicious they are also an excellent source of anthocyanins. These are plant pigments which are antioxidants that stimulate the immune system and are known to help prevent heart disease, cancer and more.
Like most other bramble fruits, blackberries bear best on old wood, which are stems in their second or third year. If you cut them back heavily in spring the growth is fresh and considered as new wood, limiting your fruit supply.
Pretty pink flowers in early summer are followed by fruit which is ready to harvest through late summer into autumn.
Blackberries need full sun. They require slightly acidic soil rich in compost and good drainage. The plants are relatively drought tolerant, but they’ll need a steady supply of water to get them established.
