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.

I live in "we don't ship there" land on Continental Europe. I have received 5cm Rootballs carefully packaged and send by regular post. Plants arrived in exellent condition and with adequate moist. While I can write review of their fruits in 2 years time I will definitly order more. I am really happy that I was able to get "dificult to get variety" of blackberry with more than reasonable shipping costs.

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.
