if the tree is planted with a second tree.
Baby Cakes is a dwarf, thornless blackberry perfect for patio pots with its compact habit. In summer, large, sweet berries present on the plant in a fireworks-like spray of fruit. In most regions, this blackberry will produce twice in one season!
Baby Cakes blackberry perform best in a fairly neutral soil with a pH of 6.5-7.5. The soil and location should be well-drained and in full sun. In regions with extreme heat, this variety will perform best in afternoon shade protected from excessive heat. All of the varieties in the Bushel and Berry collection will thrive in patio pots, edible gardens or in the landscape for years of enjoyment. We recommend planting in a large pot as big as 24 to 36-inches, and up to a half-whiskey barrel. Remember, this is a cane berry that will continue to grow shoots which will eventually fill the pot. Baby Cakes blackberry requires little winter maintenance and usually can be left outside. In cases of harsh winter weather, insulating the plant or moving the pot to an unheated garage is a good idea. While storing the plants inside, make sure to keep the soil moist but not soaked.
