Growing Blackberries is easy if you plant them in the right conditions and give them the support they need.

1. Plant where they will get at least 10 hours of direct sunlight.

2. Construct trellises for trailing varieties before planting.

3. Space upright varieties at 3-foot intervals in rows 8 feet apart. Set trailing varieties 5 to 8 feet apart in rows 6 to 10 feet apart. 

4. Cut the plants back to about six inches after you plant them.

5. Fertilize the ground as soon in the spring as you possibly can.

6. Make sure the growing blackberry plants recieve about one inch of water a week.
