Blackberry Plants need full sun to produce an abundance of fruit. They can tolerate some shade, however, the more sun they get, the sweeter the berries will be.
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.
