Perfect for the smaller garden, British-bred blackberry 'Loch Ness' produces its firm, glossy-black, conical fruits on short, upright, thornless canes. This heavy cropper is capable of producing up to 3.6kg (8lb) of fruit per blackberry bush that can be harvested from mid-August until the first frosts. Blackberries are quick to establish and easy to grow, rewarding you with flavoursome fruits to add to desserts or make your own jams.


Our 1 year old blackberry plants are container grown rather than field grown to provide you with stronger, superior quality plants. Self fertile. Height: 2m (6'). Spread: 2.5m (8').

Estimated time to cropping once planted: 16-20 months.
Estimated time to best yields: 28-32 months.

Water well for the first year until blackberry plants are fully established. Train the stems onto their supports as they grow. Cover the plants with netting to protect the crop from birds as blackberry fruits begin to develop. Blackberries can be harvested from July onwards. In autumn, prune the canes which have fruited over summer to ground level. Canes which have not fruited should be 'tied in' to their supports. In spring, while the ground is moist, apply a mulch of well rotted manure or garden compost to the base of the canes to improve moisture retention throughout the summer.
Plant blackberry bushes in a sunny position in any well drained soil. Incorporate plenty of well rotted manure or garden compost into the ground prior to planting. When growing blackberry plants, support the stems on a framework of wires stretched between sturdy 1.8m (6') posts, or trained against a trellis or wall.

Have already picked over 14lbs of lovely, well flavoured berries from just TWO bushes & there are still lots more to come. Highly recommended for easy to grow, large tasty berries.
