CARE
Care Provide fertile, mildly acidic, well-drained soil. Water deeply, regularly in first growing season to establish extensive root system. Feed before new growth begins in spring. After harvest, prune to ground older canes that have fruited, leaving one-year-old canes to produce next season's crop. Train newer canes on trellis.
HISTORY
Lore Blackberry plants produce long stems that grow from the ground - called primocanes and floricanes. Primocanes are canes in their first year of growth, while floricanes are canes that are in their second year of growth. 'Black Satin' produces its blackberries on floricanes, so pruning should be timed to take advantage of this two-year growth cycle.
