Blackberry Plants

Blackberries are wonderfully easy to grow in borders or containers and these delicious heavy-cropping varieties are perfect for pies, crumbles and even a Kir Royale. Buy bare root blackberry plants for planting from November to March for the best value, and watch them spring to life when the temperature rises! Read on for more tips on choosing, growing and caring for your blackberry plants.

Choose your Blackberry plants

For smaller spaces, a compact blackberry variety like Waldo or Loch Ness will yield great results and as an added bonus, they’re thornless. All of our varieties have been selected for their sweet, rich flavour but for the biggest crop, choose the twice-life-sized Black Butte, which produces kilograms of fruit each summer - get the jam pan ready!

Where to grow Blackberry plants

Blackberries will famously grow anywhere, but for the best results choose a sunny spot in your garden with well drained soil and plenty of support for the rambling stems to twine around - a wall or fence is perfect. You can even grow a compact variety like Waldo in containers.

Blackberry plant care tips

Blackberry plants need very little care - just regular watering and weeding. They thrive on the UK’s summer climate of warm days and cool nights, and produce fruit from the first year.
