    This high yielding thornless bush can produce up to 3.6kg of large firm and glossy blackberries from mid August until the first frosts. It is such a super-producer that it is now the number one variety used by commercial growers. Grow it in a large pot on a sunny patio or train it against a sunny wall or fence and enjoy a long-lasting supply of delicious fruit.

  • Garden care: Prepare the ground well before planting. Remove all weeds and dig in plenty of well-rotted manure in to the area. Once planted shorten the canes to about 23cm (9in). 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.
