How Far Apart Should Blackberry Plants Be Planted?

Blackberry plant spacing is based on the type of cultivar. Trailing, vine-like cultivars require 4 to 10 feet between each plant and 8 to 10 feet between rows. Upright blackberry plants need less room between each plant. Place plants about 4 to 6 feet apart and allow 8 to 10 feet between rows.
