A guide to choosing the right size

Blackmoor Nursery is one of very few Nurseries in the UK offering gardeners the opportunity to buy Tayberry 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.

5cm Rootball - 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.


If Tayberry 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.

For most fruits choose a warm sheltered position avoiding wet or shaded spots, although soft fruit will tolerate some shade. Avoid north walls except when planting blackberries which will crop successfully, albeit, a little later in the season. Crops are likely to be sparse in frosty situations. If birds are troublesome a fruit cage can be erected.

Ordered a range of fruit bushes last August. I rarely leave reviews for companies but have to say I was really impressed with the quality of the order from Blackmoor. All the plants were healthy and strong growing, by far the best of the orders I placed with a number of online well known nurseries. It's Feb now and already the Buckingham Tayberry is bursting into life. Will definitely order again from Blackmoor.

Just wanted to say how delighted I have been with your service. Excellent web site and good communication regarding progress of my order. Very prompt delivery and very well packaged. On opening the parcel the plant was of excellent quality.

Plant arrived within 24hrs of order processing. It arrived healthy for still being winter weather. It was a birthday gift and the boyfriend loved it. I recommend doing business with Blackmoor as they are definitely professional and care about their reputation as a great seller of their products.

Ordered a few 9cm soft fruits, this one with Loch Ness. 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!

Similarly to the redcurrant also ordered, it's the overall quality of your stock-size,condition-that stands out, as we found with our first order last year. Ordering again this year speaks for itself and as long as we can find we have any room left for more fruit in the future, we shall look to Blackmore

Generally very good though could have done with clearer information on suitability of various rootstocks for container use & size of containers required. Also could do with more information on flavour of each fruit & pollination requirements (suitable pollinators, benefits - if any - of having a pollinator even though self fertile etc.)
