Bare Root Berries
How To Choose A Blackberry
Consider your climate, your soil, the location of the plants and your tolerance for thorns! Some of the tastiest and most prolific berries have thorns. Decide which varieties best suit your needs.
Blackberries flourish in full sun in most climates and they prefer rich, moist soil and generous fertilization. Drip irrigation is recommended as the leaves will stay dry and the plants are less likely to get rust, a fungal disease. The trailing canes need major support, typically a fence, and the more upright varieties such as Apache and Navajo also do better with some support. Allow the plants to grow naturally the first year and then train them on the supports the second year. The trailing varieties can be tied or woven along the supports. After producing berries, the fruiting canes should be cut to the ground.
