    Introducing the first ever hanging basket blackberry that is named perfectly due to it's thornless cascading stems. This variety produces masses of sweet tasting berries and it's so easy to maintain.

  • Garden care: Prepare the ground well before planting. Remove all weeds and dig in plenty of well-rotted manure and then plant at 2m intervals. Each spring, mulch well with well-rotted manure. Plants flower on one-year-old wood, so the new canes need to be separated from fruiting ones. After cropping, cut the fruiting canes down to the ground and tie in the new ones that have grown that year.
