Blackberry (Rubus) 'Oregon'
Fully hardy and easy to grow, this popular variety of Blackberry is favoured for its ornamental leaves and mild flavoured, juicy fruit. The white, pink-flushed flowers are followed by medium-sized fruit from August onwards. Canes are thornless and require some support so perfect for growing along fences, trellises or archways.
Keep well watered until firmly established. Floricane variety. Plant into any average garden soil, avoiding wet areas. Feed in spring with a good general fertiliser.
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.
