Plant blackberry ‘Black Cascade’ bushes in a sunny position in well drained containers in a good quality, rich compost and water well.
Water well particularly during dry periods. 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 thornless.

Blackberry black cascade

My three plants Arrived yesterday, they look a bit sorry for themselves but am sure they will pick up once planted..i was just wondering how many plants do i plant in to each basket, all three , or one per basket?
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 firstname.lastname@example.org who will be able to help.
