A pick-your-own garden with climbing fruits like blackberries, raspberries, blueberries and grapes do not require much room. These plants grow upwards along a wall, fence, frame or pergola, and can even thrive on a balcony. They offer attractive foliage and blossom early in the summer.
During the summer the fruits develop, which can then be harvested late summer and autumn. So there’s always something going on with climbing fruit. Seeing fruit growing (and ultimately eating it) is a fun and educational experience for children and incorporates the growing trend of wanting to know where your food comes from. And what you don’t eat yourself will delight the birds in autumn.
