Why We Love It

'Merton Thornless' is a generous cropper of medium to large sized fruit with excellent flavour.

It's a vigorous blackberry, so needs good space, but is is exceptionally easy to manage because it is thornless, so no scratching when you're trying to prune or pick.

For best results, plant in half shade or full sun.

It's hardy but can be vulnerable to hard frosts on very exposed sites, so best to plant in a sheltered spot.

How to Plant

The plant grows well in most types of well-draining soil of any pH level. Keep the soil moist and give it full sun or partial shade.

Into the Ground

  1. Dig a hole in the ground that's double the size of the rootball.
  2. Take your plant out of its pot and spread the roots a little.
  3. Place it gently in the hole.
  4. Coat the roots with compost.
  5. Pat the soil down and give your plant a good water.
