Planting & Care

Choose a well-drained, sunny location with no standing water. Prepare the soil before planting by mixing compost or other organic matter in with the soil. Work the soil deeply. Space plants 3' apart in rows 6' apart. Dig each hole to twice the size of the root mass. Blackberries require sun with afternoon shade in hot climates. Protect the roots from drying out by watering regularly and mulching. Thornless blackberry plants are upright, orderly and easy to maintain. Growing 4' - 8', the plants can form a sturdy hedge, but can benefit from the support of a trellis with a heavy crop. Thornless blackberries need to be pruned after each harvest to prevent the spread of diseases.
