Much breeding work has been carried out on blackberries over the past few years with some interesting and exciting results, and these new varieties are no exception! This collection consists of two of the latest varieties, both perfect for the patio.
A breakthrough in blackberry breeding now means it is possible to pick deliciously sweet tasting blackberriesfrom outside of the kitchen door, and harvest up to 1.3kg (2.8lbs) of fruit from one hanging basket!
Black Cascade is thornless, will fruit in its first year, and three plants will be enough to fill a 14-16in/35-40cm hanging basket. Plants are compact and produce arching, thornless and trailing stems which become loaded with fruit from August through to October. The berries are large and sweet, perfect for eating fresh as well as for making pies, crumbles and jam. No more scrambling through the hedgerows to find fresh blackberries, just plant up a hanging basket or patio container with Black Cascade and enjoy harvesting tasty blackberries from the patio!
This brand new variety is another breeding break-through in the blackberry department and has been bred for growing in pots on the patio. Similar in growth to our popular ‘Black Cascade’, but with a more upright habit making it ideal for growing in containers on a bright and sunny patio. The neat, compact habit and thornless stems make picking the deliciously sweet and juicy berries incredibly easy and the plants are tough and resilient, producing bumper yields from August to October. Perfect for eating fresh and excellent for pies and jams.
