Blackberries prefer a loose textured, well-drained soil. Avoid sites with a high water table where water sits for long periods of time, especially during winter months. Blackberries will thrive in most soil types and are cold hardy in most areas of the United States. Plant late winter to early spring. Space 4-6’ in a row with 6-8’ between rows. The older stems or tops of the transplants can be cut back several inches.
