Growing Bedford Giant Blackberry Plants:

Support will be necessary to keep your plants from becoming a mounded tangle. Due to its hefty size, a common strategy is "up and over but to me" a wall or fence, with the stems that are too tall for the fence turning back into your garden, not the neighbours. Unless you really like them. 

Spacing: 1.8 metres apart is more than enough: a bit of extra space helps light to reach the lower parts of the canes.
