A guide to choosing the right size

Blackmoor Nursery is one of very few Nurseries in the UK offering gardeners the opportunity to buy Blackberry plants direct from our Nursery. 

All orders are despatched in one delivery. If your order contains both bare root and container grown plants then we can only despatch when all plants are ready. 

3 Litre = Container grown and can be planted all year round. The size refers to the number of litres of compost that the container holds.

Plant 6–10 feet apart (1.8–3 m). 

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


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.

An excellent quality plant bought last year, planted out and is cropping really well. Wonderful service from Blackmoor …

My Loch Ness was delivered at the end of April, approximately 4 weeks ago. It has already bloomed into the most beautiful leafy plant and I'm certain it will produce wonderful fruit. I will not hesitate to use Blackmoor for further orders.

Ordered a few 9cm soft fruits, this one with a thornless tayberry. Service outstanding as always. We planted these in 40cm pots last autumn and they have grown significantly since then. Lots of new leaves now in March and hopefully both plants will fruit this year. Can't wait!

Only last week I ordered four Blackberry plants, including Helen, Loch Ness, Oregon Thornless and Waldo. I was then kept informed by e-mail as to the status of my order by both Blackmoor and the courier, and, three days later four excellent plants were delivered. I could not have asked for more. - one very satisfied customer.
