Compact heavy cropper ideal for small gardens

'Loch Ness' is a deciduous, high-yielding, upright shrub with thornless canes which produces an abundance of berries in late summer, which would be perfect for putting in tarts, pies, crumble and jam. This blackberry bush is one of the favourites of commercial growers due to the high amount of berries that this bush produces.

It is important to water your newly-planted raspberries or blackberries on a frequent basis (at least bimonthly for two months). You should also ensure adequate spacing (40 - 60cm) between each bush.

    • With bare root plants, you should soak their roots in water for up to 2 hours before planting, while with potted plants, you should drench their rootball.
    • If you are planting a bare root plant, dig a hole so that their first roots are no more than 2 inches below the ground.
    • If you are planting a containerised plant, make sure that the pot sits no lower than an inch below the ground.
    Please see below for our planting guidance:

  • Fill the planting hole with a mix of compost and garden soil, and add fertiliser and mycorrhizal fungi. Take care to not compress the soil.
  • Once you are happy with your efforts, provide your plant with a good watering.
  • Add mulch on top (whether bark and wood chippings, compost, manure, leaf-mould, and stones). Try to keep the mulch from touching the stem.
  • Blackberry and raspberry bushes are wonderful for the beginner grower. Below we address some common query topics:

    • Hardiness: Native to the UK, your blackberry or raspberry plant is well accustomed to the milder climate.
    • Position: Planting in full sun is always recommended, however they still tolerate light shade.
    • Soil: Soil types can be an unwelcome confusion as many plants will adapt to their conditions. Nonetheless, less than ideal conditions will certainly limit your plant’s growth. Waterlogged soils will starve your plant of oxygen, which plays a key role in photosynthesis; causing its roots to rot and creating an optimal environment for disease.
