Description of Loch Ness Plants & Fruit:
Loch Ness blackberry bushes are a compact and upright thornless variety that can be grown with little support, ideal for a small space or growing in a large pot.
The dark fruit is very firm, on the large side & the tangy taste is close to that of wild blackberries.
Most blackberries are best grown along wires, but Loch Ness is a tidy plant that can be grown up a single post or in a row of raspberries.
Spacing: Because they are nice and compact, you can get away with leaving only 3'6" / 1 metre between each plant in a row.

We have the Scottish Crop Research Institute, based in Invergowrie, to thank for this special variety. They are so easy to grow & the fruit is so good that Loch Ness has been a smash hit with famers.
They can now be found growing in fields all over the place - but they'll never taste as good in the shops as they do straight off the bush.
Loch Ness has been given the Award of Garden Merit by the RHS.
