#ProPlantTips for Care
Grow Black Satin Blackberries on a trellis in a planting site that receives full sun. They need at least six hours of direct sunlight for the best fruit production.
It is tolerant of a wide range of soils, but performs best in a well-drained soil. Add several handfuls of compost during planting, along with a packet of Nature Hills Root Booster.
Make sure your fruiting plants receive a medium amount of water on a regular basis, especially as the fruit develops. Add pine straw or pine bark mulch over the root system to keep it cool and moist.
Black Satin will produce fruit on last year's canes, called floricanes. After fruiting, trim the spent floricanes off at ground level and place in lawn bags for pickup.
Leave this year's growth, called primocanes, standing over winter. Their turn to produce flowers and fruit will come next year.
Apply slow-release fertilizer in early spring. Please follow the directions on the label for application rates.
