Blackberry Plant: If you have a partially wooded yard with plentiful sunshine or mixed shade spots, a blackberry plant might make an excellent addition. When customers call TN Nursery for advice on easy-care fruit-bearing options, we often suggest the blackberry plant.
Unlike fruit trees, which can take several years to bear fruit, the blackberry plant might give you a few berries in the first season, ramping up production season after season until year three. Once mature, it will supply you with ten to twenty pounds of berries for the next twenty to twenty-five years.
The Rustic Charm of a Blackberry Plant
The blackberry plant grows in brambles or thickets, thriving in sunny clearings at the edges of woods or a forest. The North American native plant thrives in full sun or partial sun--a bright spot is a requirement for producing plump and luscious berries.
The first year you plant your blackberry plant, it will develop a few clusters of petite, pretty white flowers. Those flowers may produce a handful of berries during the first season.
The blooms will produce small white berries that plump up as they mature. The berries appear white at first, then reddening to an almost burgundy color and eventually a rich violet to black. Ripe blackberries are juicy, sweet, and plump.
As the plant matures, it grows wider and taller, topping at around six feet. They bring lazy summer days and fresh pies (or scrumptious cobblers) to mind. Can't you imagine the sweet juices drizzling down your chin as you bite into a lush berry?
How to Grow a Blackberry Plant
The blackberry plant requires a full-sun to partial-sun location for the berries to develop and ripen fully.
Blackberry plants need approximately one inch of water weekly, especially as the blossoms and berries develop. That's because the berry contains a high water content. You will not need to assist your plant if your region receives ample weekly rainfall. However, gardeners in arid locations must help the blackberry plant by supplying water.
Although it likes moisture, the blackberry plant does not like wet feet. Instead, it prefers soil that drains relatively quickly. You'll also need to fertilize it in the springtime as the blossoms develop--that food will nourish the plant and help it produce abundantly.
