The wild blackberry bush is a perennial that grows the best in hardiness zones 3-9.

The tall, arching branches are covered in thorns and grow up to 3-6 meters tall.

A trellis is recommended to support the branches, which will help the plant grow more robust and produce more fruit. The bush branches die back yearly after the summer growing season, and new stems grow to replace them.

Every year, pruning back the dead branches will give the new growth room to spread and prevent the plant from appearing messy and overgrown. The wild blackberry bush blooms flowers in the late springtime and early in summer. It has white and pale pink petals measuring about 2-3 centimeters in diameter.

The plant requires soil that is sandy and drains well with an acidic PH value.

Soil amendments such as coffee grounds and peat moss can help make the soil more acidic for the wild blackberry bush.

It prefers full sun to grow properly and produce the most blackberries. Mulching around the plants is vital to prevent weed growth and keep the soil moist. This bush must receive about an inch of water a week and requires more when temperatures are hotter.

Once the plant beings to produce berries, they will need to be picked as often as every other day to prevent spoiling. To harvest the blackberries, pick them only when they are entirely black and plump, as the berries will not ripen any more once picked.
