#ProPlantTips for Care:

Give Bramble plants full sun so they can achieve fruit production in abundance. Space Blackberry plants five feet apart. Leave the new canes in place to fruit for next year. Hardy throughout USDA growing zones 5 through 9! Plant in well-drained soil with moderate moisture throughout the growing and fruiting season. Provide a layer of mulch over the root system to hold in moisture and insulate the roots.

Prune or top new floricanes back to 5-6 feet. Tip prune the canes back once they reach 42 inches to encourage fruiting laterals and maintain the upright, bushy form. Once canes have fruited, and been harvested, cut those canes right down to the root.

  • Full Sun
  • Regular Moderate Moisture & Appreciates Mulched Beds
  • Adaptive to a Variety of Soils
  • Pest and Disease Resistant
  • Self-Fertile - Increased Harvest With Multiple Plants
