Rubus alleghaniensis x Blackberry Chester
The Berry Patch in a Pot™ Range features four great varieties of fruit that can be grown in any garden!
These plants are ideal for pots and containers, and feature a great recipe on the back of each label. Blackberries are native to several continents, including Asia, Europe, and North and South America, and documented human consumption was recorded more than 2,000 years ago. People have used the blackberry plant as a hedge to protect property, for medicinal uses and as a source of healthy consumption.
Blackberries grow and fruit best when in full sunshine, but can tolerate some shade. Too much shade will not allow them to produce any fruit. They are adaptable to a wide variety of soils, but prefer soil that is well drained. During dry periods it is best to water them once or twice a week.
The best time to harvest blackberries is when the fruit changes colour from red to purple.
