Blackberry Black Satin is a popular variety known for its large, juicy fruit and thornless canes. It’s a reliable and vigorous grower, perfect for the British climate.
Best position: Plant blackberries in full sun in well-drained soil. They can grow in a range of soil types, but prefer slightly acidic soil. It’s important to plant them away from other plants, as they can spread and become invasive.
When to plant: Blackberries are best planted in late autumn or early winter when the soil is moist and warm. Alternatively, they can be planted in the spring when the soil has warmed up.
Fruiting time: Blackberries fruit from mid to late summer. They are ready to harvest when they turn a deep purple color.
Height and spread: Blackberry Black Satin grows up to 2m tall and 2m wide. They can be trained onto a trellis or support system to make harvesting easier.
When to feed: Blackberries benefit from a balanced fertiliser in the spring. It’s important not to over-fertilise as this can lead to excessive vegetative growth and reduced fruit production. Mulching around the base of the plant with well-rotted compost or manure can also help to retain moisture and suppress weeds.
