Various species of wild blackberries are found in the northern hemisphere. Commercial cultivation began first in America in the first half of the 19th century, and in Europe in the second half of the 19th century.
The planting distance of blackberry seedlings is 2.5-3.00 m x 1 m in the row for the trellis system, and 2 x 1-1.50-2.50 m in the row for the shrub system.
Our blackberry seedlings are produced and grown in our nursery. We use the initial material for the production of blackberry seedlings from our parent plantations, which were raised from blackberry seedlings of the certified category. Certified planting material is from leading institutes from the Netherlands, Italy and Germany. The parent plantations were erected on locations that have spatial isolation, as well as in specially protected areas, the so-called retinas that are protected with anti-insect nets. Thanks to this fact, we produce blackberry seedlings of the standard category and for seedlings we have all the certificates issued by the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Water Management of the Republic of Serbia.
