Care Information

Planting your blackberries:

  • Before planting, dig the ground over well and incorporate plenty of well-rotted organinc matter. Remove all perennial weeds.
  • Water your potted plant well.
  • Dig a hole a little deeper and 3 x wider than the nursery pot.
  • Add a soil conditioner such as well-rotted manure to the earth removed from the hole if necessary.
  • Remove the plant from its pot and tease out a few of the roots.
  • Place your plant in the hole at the same level at the pot.
  • Refill the hole with the earth removed (backfilling).
  • Firm in the soil with your heel, avoiding the root ball.
  • Water well and mulch around the base of the plant with a collar, compost, gravel, bark etc.

 

Pruning Advice for Primocane Blackberries:

  • Cut back the new spring stems, which have produced fruit at their tips in autumn, to a point just below where the blackberries were produced, soon after they have finished cropping.
  • These pruned canes can then be left to overwinter, and will put on new top growth in spring, producing a crop of berries in early summer.
  • After these two year old canes have finished fruiting they should be cut right back to the ground.
  • In the meantime, new canes will have emerged from the base of the plant in spring and these should be tied onto a support as they grow.
  • These new canes will then produce a later crop and should have their tops lopped off after fruiting. This then creates a repeating cycle.
