Plants for Spring 2019 Shipping

NOTE: We’re ‘closed’ for shipping for Spring 2019. We’ll update our inventory for Fall 2019 shipping around Summer Solstice. Check back early July, or look for a newsletter update that we’re open again. Thanks for your patience. We’re a tiny nursery and are trying our best to keep up with the interest and excitement over these wonderful plants!

Your order placed now will be collected, carefully packaged and shipped as bare root plants in the early spring when the ground has thawed but the plants haven’t started actively growing. For our climate this is normally sometime between later March and mid-April… We’ll email you shipping confirmation and tracking details as soon as they ship!

TIP: Use the tags above to help filter our offerings by characteristic (ie. click on ‘fruit’ to find any fruit bearing plants we offer, etc.) As we add more and more it is a helpful way to find a plant to fit your goals…

Thornless Blackberry

from 8.00

Rubus Fruticosus
 We’ve been amazed at how productive, vigorous and surprisingly hardy our thornless blackberries have been for our site.  Probably not as rugged as a truly thorny blackberry, but they’ve survived some pretty harsh winters with minimal damage and still producing fruit the next year.  

These plants are truly thornless, top to bottom, and all divisions and propagations make thornless plants.  Smooth to the touch with massive fruits sometimes 6-10 times larger than wild types, who wouldn’t want to grow these!  We’ll be trialing them as living fences for some of our woodland plantings this next season, and have high hopes in seeing them become a naturalized competitor with some of our wild thorny blackberry patches as they exhibit higher vigor in many cases.  This is a very worthy plant to grow, especially if you have young children or want a hands-friendly patch to harvest wonderfully flavorful and large fruit from!

Canes can grow 10’+ feet a year!  Can be trained to a fence or allowed to ‘lope’ along

Site Preference:
Loves sunny site with rich soil, but we get decent production even into the woods.  Great candidate for the forest garden edge.

Zone 6 (but in our zone 5B area they generally grow and fruit beautifully every year.  Not recommended for colder than 5B)
