Blackberry – Chester (Potted)
Thorn-free blackberry picking! You’ll get a lovely long harvest during early autumn from this variety, and it’s thornless too which is an added bonus. The berries are very sweet, and medium sized whilst the canes can grow quite large if left to their own devices.
Number of plants: 1 (potted)
Planting & growing tips: Dig a good sized hole and pop your plant in just below ground level and cover with soil. Can be grown in pots initially, however you will need to increase the pot size as the plant begins to establish itself. You’ll receive a full growing guide with your plant.
Ready to harvest: Aug-Mid Oct
In the kitchen: If you can resist eating these black beauty’s as you pick them from your garden then they work wonderfully in a wide array of summer desserts such as a delicious Crumble, or in an Eton Mess or perhaps as an accompanying coulis to other desserts.
Can be delivered from: Nov-Mar. This plant will arrive in a 9cm pot.
When we deliver
We deliver these plants from late November until May, depending upon the season. It is a little tricky for us to give a specific date as the fruit bushes and canes are dispatched when they are dormant as this is the best time for them to travel and be planted, so we are a little dependant on the weather.
Do I need to sign for them?
All our plant orders are dispatched with an overnight courier* to mainland UK and do not need to be signed for when they are delivered, but will be left somewhere safe. When placing your order, please let us know where you would like the plants left if you are not in when the courier delivers.
We will keep you posted
You will receive an email approximately a week before your order is dispatched and another on the day your plants are packed and leave us so you know to expect and prepare for their arrival.
