Loch Ness Blackberry Plants - Mid Season

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.

Characteristics of Loch Ness Bushes:

  • Self-fertile.
  • Thornless.
  • Upright growth.
  • Fruit weight is around 4g.
  • Crop size is around 3.5 kg (this is low, but bear in mind how compact the plant is - you can fit twice as many plants in a row compared to other varieties).
  • Sharp, wild flavour.
  • Crops mid August to mid/late September.

Growing Loch Ness Blackberry Plants:
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.

Background Information on Loch Ness Blackberry Bushes:

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.
