Description

The species Rubus fruticosus, which belongs to the rose family and is better known as blackberry, produces tasty fruits with a slightly sour aroma. As a climbing plant, the blackberry is easy to care for and tolerates pruning. Since it always bears on the 2-year-old shoot, the harvested canes should be cut off close to the ground and the one-year-old shoots tied to the climbing frame for next year's harvest. Flower The aroma blackberry forms white flowers from April to June. Fruit The black berries have an aromatic, fruity, sweet taste and are suitable for consumption. Harvest time from June. Growth Rubus fruticosus 'Ouachita' grows shrubby and usually reaches a height of 1 - 1.5 m and grows up to 0.5 - 1 m wide. Habitus: shrub. Foliage The aroma blackberry is deciduous. Its leaves are dark green. Water Water regularly and let the soil dry in the meantime. Location Nutrient-rich garden soil, sufficiently moist in a sunny to semi-shady position ensures lush growth and abundant harvest. Frost hardiness The Aroma Blackberry has good frost hardiness. Pruning Pruning, optimally in October, is advisable for this plant. Uses In the cottage garden For fresh consumption As a bee pasture For jams & jelly For desserts Planting While spring and fall are the best times to plant, container shrubs can be planted year-round. The planting hole should be twice as large and deep as the root ball. Remove pot, loosen root ball, place plant in hole, fill with soil, press down and water in vigorously. Similar plants This plant may be similar in requirements or appearance to Aroma Blackberry: Rubus loganobaccus (Boysenberry). Planting time Planting: March - October. Care Aroma blackberry is relatively easy to care for and is especially recommended for inexperienced plant lovers. Tip: Use slow-release fertilizer in the spring. This releases the nutrients slowly and continuously, so that the plant is evenly supplied over a longer period. Cut back frozen back shoots to the healthy wood as soon as there is no longer any danger of frost. Water less frequently, but thoroughly and penetratingly. This will stimulate the plant roots to penetrate deeper soil layers and thus better survive dry periods. Tasks Pruning: October Watering: In the period from April to September Fertilizing: In the period from April to mid-September Planting: In the period from March to October.
