Blackberries grow best in a slightly acidic, rich soil and full sun. If planting in heavy clay, add peat moss or compost. Blackberry canes should be thinned yearly, removing any canes more than two years old. Do not plant blackberries where peppers, tomatoes, eggplants, potatoes or strawberries are growing, or have grown in the last 3 years.
