How To Care

Plant your Ouachita Blackberry plant in full sun and well-drained, slightly acidic, nutrient-rich soil.

Water thoroughly when planting and two to three times weekly for two to three months while your Blackberry plant is establishing. While this plant is drought tolerant once established, keeping the soil moist during the growing and fruiting seasons will produce the best growth and fruit.

Mulch your blackberry bushes after planting. Add 1 to 2 inches of pine bark or pine straw in a mound around your plants. Mulch helps the soil stay moist longer, controls weeds, and protects shallow roots.

Fertilize when planting and in spring with our Very Berry Fertilizer.

Training blackberry plants to a trellis can allow you healthier plants, more fruit, and even easier picking. Training allows sunlight to hit the entire plant and promotes better air circulation.

If you have not trellised and your Ouachita Blackberry plant is getting overgrown, prune new canes to 3 to 4 feet in summer to control growth. Prune any dead or crowded branches back to the crown after harvesting fruit. Tip new (this year’s) canes to encourage lateral branching. Increase crop yields by trimming lateral branches back to 12 inches in early spring.
