Water well for the first year until plants are fully established. Tie stems to their supports as they grow. When berries begin to develop, place a net over the plants to protect your crop from greedy birds! 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. This will help to retain moisture throughout the summer.
Grow thornless blackberry plants in a sunny position in any well drained soil. Blackberry stems require support so plant them against a wall or trellis, or support them on a framework of wires stretched between sturdy 1.8m (6') posts. Prior to planting, incorporate plenty of well rotted manure or garden compost into the planting hole. Plant blackberries at the same soil level as they were in their original pots and firm them into the ground. Fasten stems to their supports, and water well.
