These blackberry plants are the most widely grown variety of blackberries in our climate. These are a winter hardy, early to mid season variety with very good yields (up to 3.6kg per plant) of fruit.
They can be trained and pruned exactly like summer fruiting raspberry plants. Blackberry Lough Ness can be grown in a large pot on a sunny patio or trained against a sunny wall or garden fence.
Garden care: Prepare the ground well before planting. Remove all weeds and dig in plenty of well-rotted manure. Space at 1.8m intervals and once planted, shorten the canes to about 23cm (9in). Each spring, mulch well with well-rotted manure. Plants flower on one-year-old wood, so the new canes need to be separated from fruiting ones. After cropping, cut the fruiting canes down to the ground and tie in the new ones that have grown that year.
