Product Description

A new type of blueberry, 'Bluedrop' brings a new dimension to this popular berry. Everbearing with teardrop-shaped fruits (hence its name) you'll experience a taste sensation with an abundance of balanced, sweet and sharp blueberries.

Produced on compact plants which reach around 60cm, the refreshing fruits mature in succession from the end of June until the first frosts, greatly extending the yield compared to traditional blueberries.

Easy to grow in ericaceous soil, they don't have complicated needs, so anyone can grow them from the most inexperienced gardeners to experts and, being smaller than the older varieties, they're ideal in pots on decks and balconies so you don't even need a garden.

Perfect for underplanting beneath normal blueberries for an extended crop, as a bonus they're semi-evergreen too, so make a decorative feature for most of the year.

Supplied as an established plant in a 3L pot, ready for immediate planting.

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 - 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.
