RHS Plants for Pollinators

Blackberry (Rubus) 'Black Satin'

A high yielding variety that is self fertile and produces large, rounded fruits from August to September. Being thornless, picking the fruits is a dream! Hardy, easy to grow and loved by pollinating insects.

Plant Care

Keep well watered until firmly established. Prune once annually to promote next year's growth. Plant into any average garden soil, avoiding wet areas. Feed in spring with a good general fertiliser.

Planting Instructions

Water thoroughly, or stand pot in a container of water for half an hour before planting. Dig a hole twice the size of the root ball. Remove the pot, place the plant in the hole so that the root ball is level with the surrounding ground and refill, firming if necessary. Keep well watered in dry weather. Feed in spring with a good, general fertiliser.
