‘Baby Cakes®’ Blackberry

$26.00

Harvest fresh Blackberries from your patio or porch. This thornless bush is part of the Bushel and Berry® line of compact, ornamental berry bushes. In late spring and early summer, clusters of white flowers appear on well-branched, mounding plants. By midsummer, the blossoms have become full-size, juicy berries that are full of flavour, nutrients, and beneficial antioxidants. In most areas, Baby Cakes offers up a second crop of fruit in mid-fall. Plants reach 3-4’ tall making them perfect for small spaces or container gardening. Once they become established, they will fruit reliably for years. Plants are self-pollinating.

 

Available as: #01 Potted Individual Plants

Bushel and Berry™ Container Blackberry Growing Guide

Growing Bushel and Berry™ Blackberries in containers:

Bushel and Berry® bushes are dwarf plants that require no trellising or staking. Upon arrival, replant in a 12–16″ container using good-quality potting soil. Place the container outdoors in full sun for the growing season. As your plant matures, you will likely need to put it in a 20–24″ diameter container. Your plant will start producing more fruit in the second year.

Fertilizing. Fertilize your plants in early spring and again in midsummer with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer (such as 18-18-18).

Pruning. Simply let your plant go dormant in the winter. In early spring, you should start to see new green sprouts coming up from both soil and on some of the old canes. The sprouts from the ground will become canes that will fruit the following year. Old canes with new growth emerging should fruit this year. Leave all the new shoots from the ground and old canes that have green leaves emerging. Cut all the dead canes with no new growth at ground level.

Wintering over. In colder climates (Zone 5), you can overwinter plants in their containers by storing them in a sheltered, unheated area such as a garage or shed once the leaves drop in fall. Be certain the soil is moist when the plant is brought under cover, and water very sparingly during the winter. Once every 6 weeks is generally sufficient. The intent is for the plant to go as dormant as possible. In spring, bring them outside when temperatures remain above 25°F and place in full sun.

In warmer climates where freeze-thaw cycles occur, store plants on a protected porch. Where freezing is not a concern, plants can remain outdoors in containers and enjoyed year-round.
