  Where to plant

Where to plant Blackberries


Blackberries are best planted in a well-drained soil of loam, clay, sand or chalk within a neutral, acidic or alkaline PH balance. They are best positioned in an area of full sun as they will need full sun to flower and produce fruits. Blackberries are well suited to a wildlife garden and are best planted against a wall or fence so the canes can be tied.

How to care for Blackberries


Regularly tie canes to wires on a wall or fence. In their first winter, cut back all side-shoots produced on the main canes to 5cm (2in). When the plant is two years old, after fruiting, cut fruited canes down to soil level and cover the cut canes with compost. Spread a thick layer of well-rotted compost or farmyard manure over the roots in late winter every few years.
