Time to first crop:
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
