Buy blackberry 'Oregon Thornless' blackberry Oregon Thornless: A thornless variety

This plant is deciduous so it will lose all its leaves in autumn, then fresh new foliage appears again each spring.

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: any soil
  • Rate of growth: fast-growing
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    A popular variety with ornamental leaves and thornless stems. The saucer-shaped, white flowers flushed with pink are produced in summer, followed by medium-sized fruit with a mild and juicy flavour in late August to late September. It is a good variety to grow where people are likely to brush past the stems or trained over an arch or trellis.

  • Garden care: Prepare the ground well before planting. Remove all weeds and dig in plenty of well-rotted manure. Allow 3m between each plant and 1.8m between rows. Once planted, shorten the canes to about 23cm (9in). Each spring, mulch well with well-rotted manure. Plants flower on one-year-old wood, so the new canes need to be separated from fruiting ones. After cropping, cut the fruiting canes down to the ground and tie in the new ones that have grown that year.

Prodigiously vigorous


I bought this as I had one in my previous garden. The fruit here is not yet ripe but I remember it being large, juicy and having a good flavour. The leaves are very attractive and they stay on most of not all the winter depending on how severe it is - and being thornless, it is easy to prune and handle. The planting instructions were to plant 3 m apart and suggests the canes will grow 3 metres which is a little more than I remember. So I am amazed to find that here in a more sheltered garden they are heading well beyond their trellis, up into trees, over the fence – those I haven't had to cut back are over 4½ metres long and still growing happily - so I suggest that you don't try to fit this into a small space.

Vegetable suggestions for a shady veg. garden! Hello I have raised beds for veggies in my new garden. One bed gets sun most of the day whilst the other gets only a little sunshine .Could you please help with a list of fruit and veg to grow in each of them. Many thanks


Hello There, I'm afraid you will have trouble getting a bumper yield of any of the edible crops if the bed receives little sun, as most of them need full sun. Ones that tolerate some shade include radish, potato, borage, horseradish, blueberry, blackberry and tayberry - all the others will flourish in the sun. I hope this helps. Helen Plant Doctor

Can I plant Blackberry and Raspberry canes in November? Can you help please? Should the Blackberry and Raspberry canes be planted out now in November? Thank you

Hello There, They should go in the ground as soon as possible, but avoid planting during periods when the soil is either frozen or waterlogged. I hope this helps. Helen Plant Doctor

Can I grow a blackberry in a container? Hello Can you tell me if the Blackberry 'Oregon Thornless' you have for sale is suitable to grow in a container. Many thanks


Hello There, This will grow in a container, but it would need to be a really big one and you will need to make sure it is kept well fed and watered. A better blackberry however would be Loch Ness as it is more compact. I hope this helps. Helen Plant Doctor
