Rubus fruticosus, Blackberry 'Bedford Giant' is a vigorous variety producing large clusters of glossy round berries with a mild, sweet flavour. Delicious eaten fresh or stewed, in pies or crumbles, as well as making excellent jam or jelly. One of the first varieties to ripen, in late July-August.

Plant in well prepared, well-drained soil enriched with well-rotted manure or compost, in sun or light shade. Space plants at 4.5m (15ft) intervals. Provide support on wires on a trellis or fence or on a post and wire structure. Cut old canes down to the ground after fruiting and tie in new canes for the next season's fruit. Mulch with spent hops or compost in spring.

British nursery grown.

Bee friendly.
