Water regularly until fully established. Blackthorn require little aftercare. Simply remove any diseased, damaged or crossing shoots to maintain a healthy framework. Apply a mulch of well rotted manure or compost around the base of the plants in spring, taking care not to mound mulch up against the stems.
Plant Blackthorn in any moist, fertile, well-drained soil. Incorporate plenty of compost or well-rotted manure prior to planting. Ideally grown in full sun.
