Buy blackberry 'Purple Opal' blackberry: New thornless blackberry perfect for patio pots

This plant is deciduous so it will lose all its leaves in autumn, then fresh new foliage appears again each spring.

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: any soil
  • Rate of growth: fast-growing
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Brand new for Autumn 2017. Similar berry growth to 'Black Cascade' but the upright growth habit is what makes this variety more perfect for easy picking from patio pots. Ideal for limited space gardens. Thornless. Deliciously sweet and juicy fruit (late July to the end of August)

  • Garden care: Prepare the ground well before planting. Remove all weeds and dig in plenty of well-rotted manure and then plant at 2m intervals. Each spring, mulch well with well-rotted manure. Plants flower on one-year-old wood, so the new canes need to be separated from fruiting ones. After cropping, cut the fruiting canes down to the ground and tie in the new ones that have grown that year.
