Hybrid berries

 

Blackberries and hybrid berries fully justify their place in the garden as decorative plants which thrive in a wide range of locations and soil types. There are a number of hybrids between blackberry, loganberry (itself a hybrid) and raspberry and by selecting varieties, continuous crops can be maintained from late June until the Autumn. Any surplus fruit can be successfully frozen or processed for winter use. Newer blackberry varieties have been bred to produce larger, sweeter fruits of dessert quality.

 

Adaptable to growing in sun or part shade and ideal for covering garden structures or for training on wires, fences or walls. An increasing number of thornless types means their cultivation is much easier. Ensure good winter drainage.
