Product Description

Also know as the Checkerberry or Partridge Berry, this low growing evergreen shrub is an excellent choice for containers on a tarrace or balcony and makes a handsome ground-covering plant for shady spots.

Bell shaped flowers in pinkish-white open from May to July, but 'Big Berry' really starts to put on a show in autumn, when it covers itself in large, aromatic, bright scarlet fleshy berries 10mm across. This display lasts through the winter, so you'll really appreciate the colour during the darker months.

Gaultheria prefers partial shade over sun, and will do well in full shade too, so it'll perform fantastically brightening up those dull spots that all gardens have. The soil should be neutral or a little acid, so us ericaceous compost especially when growing in pots.

Supplied as an established plant in a 13cm pot, ready to plant out. Reaching a height and spread of 15cm (6in) x 1m (3ft).

Care Guide

  • Plant in ericaceous soil in partial or full shade.
  • Apply ericaceous plant feed, such as rhododendron feed if your soil is alkaline.
  • When watering, try to use rainwater as tap water tends to be too hard.
  • Trim lightly after flowering if necessary to keep the plant neat.
