Planting Instructions

Blackberries are a very easy berry to grow. Blackberries are perennials that will return to provide an abundance of berries year after year! They are best planted in early spring, once the threat of frost has passed. Ensure you have well-draining soil. Add additional fertilizer if needed. Blackberries thrive best in a location with full sun, and lots of space for them to spread. Shady locations will provide smaller yields of fruit. Space your berries about 2 to 3 feet apart.
