Wild blackberries, or brambles, have always been in plentiful supply in British hedgerows, and have been gathered and used in many different ways for centuries. Blackberries are also being more widely cultivated commercially and are often available on pick-your-own fruit farms, as well as being in the shops from the end of July until September.
