Love blackberries but hate getting scratched by thorns?
You no longer have to be extra careful when picking berries, or warn your children about being pricked. Thorns can even be a nuisance to your pets!
More importantly - these berries don't need to be sprayed with insecticides because they are seldom bothered by pests. That means you can grow your blackberries the healthy way... no spraying!
Highly adaptable bushes grow in a variety of conditions. Just plant, then pick! You get a lifetime supply of free, delicious blackberries. Plus, unlike store bought berries shipped from South America, you know that yours are completely safe- when grown organically.
These plants produce heavy amounts of sweet, delicious berries. They grow together in large clusters and are great for eating off the bush, or for making jams and jellies.
Blackberries contain tons of healthy anti-oxidants, which are rich in health benefits.
Blackberry Plants grow upright to a height of 3-6 ft. - so you don't need a trellis.
Frequently planted in groups of 3.
Plant your Thornless Blackberry Bush in an area that receives at least 6 hours of sunlight a day. Thornless Blackberries prefer full sun but can tolerate shade. Make sure that your Thornless Blackberry Bushes aren't in a low area that could collect standing water. Plant your Thornless Black Berry Bushes about 3 feet apart for a hedge. Thornless Blackberry Bushes prefer slightly acidic soil but will adapt to your natural soil even if it's sandy or heavy in clay as long as it's well draining. Keep your soil moist, not over saturated. Thornless Blackberries need at least one inch of water per week. Early every Spring fertilize your Thornless Blackberries with a well balanced fertilizer like formula 10-10-10. White flowers will emerge on your Blackberry Bush every Spring. Soon after you'll notice your blackberries growing. They're not ripe until mid summer when their skin turns from red to a dark purple to black color. Your Blackberries are ready to be harvested when they easily pull away from their stem. This is when they're ripe and sweet.
Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Thornless Blackberry.
First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.
Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.
Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.
Next, separate the roots of your Thornless Blackberry gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.
The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.
Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.
To make it just right, use a level.
As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.
Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.
Water your Thornless Blackberry again after the transplant is complete.
To help retain some of that moisture, it's recommended that you place mulch around each plant to a depth of 2"-3" up to but not touching the trunk. Organic mulches such as wood chips also help to better soil structure as they decompose.
