Blackberry Black Cascade

Rubus fruticosus

Hardy Shrub

  • Enjoy up to 1.3kg / 2lb 13oz fruit from one basket
  • Thornless trailing stems
  • Long cropping period
There's no need to search the hedgerows for a bumper crop of blackberries! Now you can pick up to 1.3 kg of large, sweet berries from a single hanging basket planted with Blackberry Black Cascade.

This breakthrough in blackberry breeding enables gardeners to grow blackberries in a totally new setting - no need to walk a country mile to get your harvest, just pop out to the patio and harvest your baskets at leisure. Traditional blackberries are sprawling plants that don't suit a garden setting. For those without the luxury of an allotment or large vegetable patch Blackberry Black Cascade produces compact, arching plants with thornless trailing stems. Each and every stem on the plant produces berries and will crop more than once a season.

The sweet fruits don't have any of the bitterness associated with traditional blackberries - eat them straight from the plant, but try and leave some for kitchen use! Height: 30cm (12"). Spread: 45cm (18").

Plant blackberry ‘Black Cascade’ bushes in a sunny position in well drained containers in a good quality, rich compost and water well.
Water well for the until blackberry plants are fully established. Protect the plants from birds which will try to eat the ripening fruit using a net or bird scarer in each pot or basket. Blackberries can be harvested from August onwards. No pruning needed. The very young growth has hairs on the stems and what appear to be thorns on the stem. These actually protect the very young growth whilst the stems develop but as the stem matures these disappear and the Blackberry mature growth is thorn less.

    Thank you very much for your review. I can confirm with a little water and sunshine your plants will perk up shortly but may not look their best whilst they are currently dormant but this is nothing to worry about. You should plant one per 12/14" basket.

    I have recently received my Black Cascade and have repotted it. I t is a small plant, only one long stem. Do I need to prune it?

    Thank you for your review. The majority of Fruit shrubs and bushes don't require any pruning in the first year as they fruit on old stems. If you prune your fruit they will have nothing to fruit on next year. If you are concerned with the appearance of your plant, please email ccare@thompson-morgan.com who will be able to help.
