Growing Natchez Blackberry Plants:
Generally, blackberries are grown trailing along wires, but Natchez is an upright variety and a single support wire on either side of the row is enough to stop the cane from flopping over as the fruit ripens, like with most raspberries. You could grow an individual one up a single post with a hoop.
Spacing: You can plant Natchez quite close together in a row. 4' / 1.2 metres apart is more than enough.
