Product Description

This veritable superfood is believed to carry all manner of health benefits and is recommended by health experts and dietitians accordingly. Packed full of vitamins and minerals as well as antioxidants, they are not only really good for you, but they taste great too!

Blueberries provide true season-long interest and will produce lightly fragrant, bell-shaped blossom in spring, followed by delicious fruits that form and colour up ready for picking from July. In autumn, you get a flash of seasonal colour as the foliage will provide a bright flourish of scarlet before falling for the winter.

Easy to grow and look after, blueberries make brilliant patio plants and will grow perfectly in pots - do remember though to use ericaceous (acidic pH) compost though as all blueberries are intolerant of lime (alkaline soil). This mid-season variety will provide a bumper harvest from July providing many pounds of fruit per season once fully established.

You'll receive a large, established plant in a 3L pot, ready for immediate planting. Plants reach approx 1-1.5m (3-5ft).

Plant Information

Top Tips

  • While tolerant of shade, blueberries crop better in the sun.
  • Cover plants with netting when in fruit, otherwise you'll just end up feeding the birds.
  • Pick over the plants several times as not all the fruit ripens at the same time.
  • Fruits can be left on the bush for a few more days after they turn blue for a more intense and complex flavour, when they'll also easily pull away from the cluster.
  • Although self fertile and able to produce a good crop on their own, blueberries yield much more heavily if planted near another one.

Care Guide

  • Plant in well-drained, acidic soil in a sunny, sheltered spot.
  • If your garden soil has a pH over 5.5, your blueberry is best grown in a pot, in ericaceous soil. Keep it well-watered, preferable with rain water - donít allow the soil to dry out.
  • Water blueberries with rainwater if you can as tap water will gradually raise pH levels.
  • Feed every month with a liquid fertiliser for ericaceous (lime-hating) plants.
  • If growing blueberries in the garden, add plenty of organic matter such as pine needles or composted conifer clippings. Avoid farmyard manure as it will scorch the roots.
  • Pruning is rarely needed in the first two years. After that prune in late Feb Ė early Mar, aiming to remove a proportion of old wood every year. Two year-old wood is the most productive.
  • Take out any damaged, dead, and diseased wood and prune out low branches that will lie on the ground when full of fruit.
