A guide to choosing the right size

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.

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.

Bedford Giant

Blackberry Plants | Genus Rubus | fruticosus

Blackberry Bedford Giant – Early fruiting variety that starts the blackberry picking season bearing fruit from late July to August. The fruits are borne in large clusters and are large, round and soft with a good flavour. Very vigorous and therefore this is not an ideal variety for a small garden but it is suitable for planting against a wall or fence.

I come back to Blackmoors time and time again because the fruit stock is second to none; the customer service is excellent; the packaging is sturdy; despatch is swift ie a few days rather than weeks. Again, this Bedford Giant I have just received is one fine specimen. Thankyou so much everyone at Blackmoors. I love my tree!
