5cm Rootball - Available for immediate dispatch. Plants are between 20-25cm in height. They are like small plug plants that will get established very quickly. 

Bare Root = Field grown plants that have been freshly lifted and supplied with no soil around the roots. Only available during the dormant period November-April

Plant 6–10 feet apart (1.8–3 m). These plants should also not be set too deeply and after planting bare root canes should be cut back to 9” (23 cm).

The young shoots arising from the base of the plant are tied in as they grow and then the old 9” stub can be removed.

Subsequently pruning is similar to raspberries, canes that have fruited are cut out immediately after fruiting.

situation

If blackberry plants are in waterlogged soils for more than a few days at a time, they normally die a slow death from lack of aeration (oxygen) or from subsequent attack by root diseases.

Plants do best in a well-drained, fertile, loam soil with moderate water holding capacity. Avoid heavy clay soils.

Sometimes you can improve a less desirable site by tilling, increasing organic matter content and building raised beds.

Reuben - A New Primocane Blackberry

Blackberry Plants | Genus Rubus | Rubus Reuben

Blackberry - The most unique aspect of Reuben is that it is a primocane, therefore the plant will fruit on the first years growth, in the same way as autumn fruiting raspberries do. The plant also has an upright growth habit, making it a far cry from the usual wild Blackberry. The fruits are large measuring up to 4.5cm in length. Like all Blackberries Reuben is delicious cooked but also tastes fantastic straight from the bush. Reuben also has the added bonus of producing very attractive and large white flowers during the months of June and July.

We were delighted by the incredibly healthy, strong plants. The packaging was brilliant, too. There wasn't so much as a leaf broken off.

Received my plant quickly along with my other orders. Much larger than I expected and in great condition. Leaves green and lush looking. I have never grown a blackberry before but as my children love them decided to be brave and give it a go. Great service and product - I will use you again!
