A single Blackberry plant will produce abundant fruit and are not only delicious but are 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 autum.
