Follow our Steps to Success for great results!
Most of our blackberries are summer bearing, which carry one crop of berries on the over-wintering canes during the summer months. Plants begin fruiting in mid summer, and the season lasts approximately 3 - 4 weeks. The berries will have best flavor by allowing them to fully ripen.
Great for jams and desserts!

Maintain your Blackberry Plants
- 1" – 2" rainfall or equivalent per week throughout the growing season.
- At least 2 weeks prior to planting, incorporate ½–¾ lb of 10–10–10 per 100 sq ft of row.
- Commercial growers should use 500 lbs per acre.
- An additional 1–lb of 10–10–10 per 100 sq ft can be applied in July or August and in early Spring in following years.
- Regularly check and maintain the soil pH. The optimum pH range is 6.0–6.5.
- Regular cultivation is necessary during growing the season.
- Roots are shallow–don’t cultivate more than an inch deep.
- Contact your local extension for chemical recommendations.
- We do not recommend mulching your bramble plants after the establishment year.
- We strongly recommend keeping plants supported by a trellis.
- Tip first–year canes when they reach 5 ft in the Summer. Laterals on the first–year canes should be cut to approximately 12" in late Autumn.
- After harvest, cut canes that fruited at the base of the plant.
- Cut any weak, damaged or diseased canes at the base.
- Cut more canes if needed so only 6–8 canes stand per running yard of row.
