CULTURE: Blackberries perform best in full sun, with good air movement and fertile, very well-drained soil. Raised beds are an option if your site is poorly drained. Blackberries prefer soil with a pH of 6.5–6.8.
PLANTING: Adequate spacing is important for best yields. Beds should be 3' wide, with paths between the beds a minimum of 8' wide. Space plants 36–48" apart in the row. Spread the roots laterally from the stem when planting. Mulch to keep the soil evenly moist and to prevent weeds. Our technical sheet #8857, Blackberry Production from Bare-root Plants, included with each order and linked to above, provides more in-depth cultural and pruning information.
HARVEST: Primocane varieties will bear a small crop during their 1st year, with full yields beginning the 2nd year. Blackberries for fresh eating are almost always harvested by hand, as they do not ripen uniformly enough to machine harvest. Keep berries cool after harvest.
