Rubus Lochness

Tasty Green, 100% organically grown fruit. This means that only plant and animal materials have been used during cultivation. The pot and label are made of recycled plastic and are therefore a clean solution for the environment.
‘Rubus Fruticosus Loch Ness’ is a thornless blackberry with a medium vigour and a high production of tasty blackberries. It bears fruit early and for a long time, from the beginning of August until October. This allows you to enjoy the delicious sweet and firm fruits full of minerals for a longer time. The fact that the bushes do not have prickles does not affect the taste of the fruit, but they are more child-friendly and easier to pick. The plants can stand shade, but give more fruit in a sunny and sheltered spot. Thick branches should be tied back in the spring, as they produce the best fruit. Cut off everything that is still too much. Use a wall or fence to guide the branches with wires. The wires can also be stretched between two posts. Blackberries bear fruit on stems that were formed the previous year. Prune regularly, both in spring and autumn. After the harvest, completely prune away the branches that have borne the fruit. Regular pruning also prevents the spread of diseases. Rubus fruticosus Loch Ness’ is tolerant to light frost, but we advise you to protect it if it freezes more than 10°C. This can cause damage or even lead to a breakdown. This can cause damage or even lead to the death of the bush.
