Blackberry Bushes

Blackberry plants are a welcomed addition to every fruit garden! The plants are highly productive producing masses of succulent berries. The fruits are surprisingly versatile and can be eaten straight from the plant, cooked into pies, jams and crumbles or even frozen for use another day. We commonly think of wild blackberry plants rambling and growing out of hand but the good news is that much work has gone into breeding varieties which are suitable for the home gardener.
