Know Your Plant

Supplied as:

Bare Root
These plants are supplied as “bare roots” meaning that the roots are established below the ground but not actively growing (dormant) between November and March. As bare roots are stored without any soil or pot, they will easily settle themselves when in contact with soil in your garden. Don't worry if your plant is not showing any sign of growth above the ground come April, as it's still in the dormant phase and will soon explode into life.

Care Guide

Excellent pest and disease resistance

Has been bred for excellent disease resistance. Your biggest problem, as with most soft fruit, is that they are so delicious that local wildlife will want to eat them too. Grow in a polytunnel, or use a fruit net to keep birds off.MORE

Keep well watered

Water in thoroughly when planting. Blackberries prefer moist soils so make sure that summer, especially during drier periods. 1/2 time a week increasing to every other day when hot/ dry.MORE

Full sun to partial shade

Position where the plants will receive at least 4-6 hours of sunlight daily in spring/summer.MORE

Fertile, well-drained soil

Loam or sandy soil is perfect. You should also consider digging in some organic matter/ compost when planting to improve the soil.MORE

No need to feed

No feeding needed.MORE

Prune in autumn/winter

Blackberries fruit on 2 year old wood, so last years growth. To ensure good crops, make sure that you preserve the new shoots each year and then prune away the canes which have fruited that summer. You're aiming to achieve a balance of new growth and fruiting wood for each year.MORE
