Blackberries (Rubus fruticosus)
Our selection of thornless blackberries produce delicious berries throughout the season. Their flowers attract a number of pollinators, of which honey bees are the most efficient. Bees generally love blackberry blossom. Plant 2 to 3 metres apart, and cut back after planting to around 20cm. Tie new blackberry shoots in and then remove the old.
