Blueberry Bluecrop 9cm Pot
This upright, deciduous bush is not only beautiful, but it bears large, blue-purple fruit, ready for harvest in early summer. Blueberries are best eaten fresh, as they are packed full of antioxidants. The nutrients which make blueberries able to be classified as a superfood have traits which are said to cause weight loss, fat burning, anti-aging, and memory and motor skill improvements. With all these reasons to eat blueberries, it's a good thing they're also naturally delicious!

Requirements

  • Light Requirements: partial shade, full sun
  • Soil Requirements: acid, alkaline, neutral, clay, loamy, sandy (will tolerate most soil types)
  • Moisture: moist but well-drained, well-drained

Caring and Maintenance

Water during dry periods. Remove any weeds by hand and place a mulch around the plant in winter if you would like to avoid further weeds. Prune when dormant between late autumn and late winter. Aim to remove the old wood, as fruit grows on new wood.

Planting

  • Planting Distance: 1.2m

Blueberries tolerate a wide range of soil conditions, but prefer well-drained conditions. A pH of 4.0 - 6.0 is ideal. They prefer full sun, but will also grow in partial shade.
Dig a hole at least twice the size of the root ball. Ideally, mulch with compost or rotted manure. Firm the bush in well before watering.

Can be planted at any time of the year, as it is a containerised plant.

Fruit Benefits

These fruits should be eaten or frozen within a few days of harvest. They please even the most sophisticated of palates, and can be made into jams and preserves to bring great summer memories on autumn or winter days. Freshly picked fruit will bring your desserts to life with a flavour that simply can't be matched by mass produced, shop bought fruit. When planning your garden, try to choose varieties with fruits that ripen from early summer to late autumn to ensure a constant supply of fresh fruits throughout the warmer months.
