Loch Ness Blackberry Bushes

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.

Browse our variety of blackberry plants or see our full range of soft fruit bushes for sale.

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.


Bareroot planting is best done between October and April
