If you love blackberries but lack the space in your garden or haven't the time to gather tiny wild ones from the hedgerows here is the perfect answer – ‘Black Cascade’, the hanging basket Blackberry!
The result of much breeding work, ‘Black Cascade’ forms a spreading plant which gently cascades from a basket or pot, meaning you can pick the fruits easily at eye level instead of reaching and bending. No more scratched hands either as plants are thorn free. The pretty blooms that appear in summer are a magnet for bees and butterflies. When established one plant will fill a large hanging basket and yield over a kilo of large sweet juicy berries. Grow in containers too - for ease of picking choose a nice tall planter.
Fruit ripens from August to October and whilst perfect for jams and pies it’s also delicious eaten fresh, straight from the plant.
Supplied as an established plant in a 9cm pot, ready for planting, growing to a height of 30cm (1ft) and spreading 45cm (18in).
