Blackberry Merton Thornless

Buy Online

Mid season thornless variety. Generous cropper of medium to large sized fruit with excellent flavour. Due to its compact growth, Merton is an ideal variety for planting in small gardens and the short thornfree canes make maintenance simple. For best results, plant in half shade or full sun although Merton will tolerate shade and soil with less than efficient drainage. Hardy but can be vulnerable to hard frosts on very exposed sites.

  • Suitable For: Beds

To encourage vigorous new growth and help establishment, cut all stems back to 30cm (1ft) above ground at planting time. To prune thereafter each winter, just cut out the dead canes that fruited the previous season and train in the new, tying them onto support wires from where they will product their fruiting spurs the following season. Mulch yearly with well rotted compost or manure to retain moisture and suppress weeds. Water well in dry periods, and apply a growmore type fertiliser in the spring.
