Plants for Fall 2019 Shipping

Your order placed now will be collected, carefully packaged and shipped as bare root plants as soon as we enter dormancy this fall. This normally begins mid to late October and into early November. We’ll email you shipping confirmation and tracking details as soon as they ship! Since our nursery is outdoors and based on nature our timing is dependent on the weather.

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


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)
