Lowberry® Little Black Prince Blackberry

Description: This compact and thornless variety grows no more than 1m, ideal as a container plant. Produces large, shiny, firm, sweet fruit from mid-August until the first frost.

Blackberry Growing Tips: Happier planted in a sunny, sheltered site but they can tolerate light shade. Prefer moisture-retentive but well-drained soil. Blackberries are vigorous and need regular pruning. Tie in the shoots of newly-planted canes. Once they reach their first winter, cut back all sideshoots on the main canes. If you would like to eat the fruits yourself, don't forget to cover the plant to stop the birds getting them!
