Black Satin Blackberry Care
Grow this blackberry variety across the United States in USDA hardiness zones 5-8. They need full sun to produce fruit and organically rich but well draining soil. Apply our Fruit Tree Planting Mix or slow release fertilizer in early spring to help amend the native soil if you are planting it in the ground. Applying fertilizer will help boost fruit production.
The black satin blackberry size is up to 6 feet tall and 4-6 feet wide at maturity. It's the perfect size for small garden spaces or growing on your patio! Space the blackberries at least 4-5 feet apart to allow for proper air circulation.
Your black satin blackberry container should be at least twice the size of the container you get it in. A 5 or 6 gallon pot would suffice. It will need to be repotted every 2-3 years as it outgrows its current pot. With a little TLC, growing black satin thornless blackberry is rewarding and fun!
For black satin blackberry pollination, you do not need another pollinator nearby. Blackberries are self-fertile and will produce fruit with only 1 bush.
Gardeners should perform black satin blackberry pruning annually to have the best chance of producing bushels of black berries. Prune back canes after they finish fruiting. Flowers are produced on old wood so take note of which semi erect canes did not produce and save those for the following growing season.
Our thornless blackberry bushes are not shipped bare root. They are rooted in nursery pots with a full root system.
Thornless blackberries are heat tolerant, disease resistant, and so easy to grow!
