All our Fruit is bare root and is distributed from mid November until early April.

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.

I have eaten this variety before and thought if I was going to grow my own this would be a great variety to try. Gives abundant large berries . Arrived as a bare rooted twig,glad I didn't throw it out! On closer e lamination it should grow well. Good roots and viable buds. I have soaked the root and potted it up in fresh compost to get it through the winter. Will plant it out in the spring.

How far apart should I plant this variety of blackberries?

Hi Todd Blackberries will spread through the soil fast enough so you can space them as much as 3/4 feet apart however if you put them 2ft apart you will get a denser population of the fruit faster Regards Niall Quickcrop

Hi, I have very small yard but want to grow some of my own veg, e.g. beetroot. Can you advise what is easy to grow in small space and in pots? Also, does the Loch. Ness blackberry bush grow rampant? Again, I have a small space to plant it in. Is raspberry also an option for small garden? Thanks Aoife
