Blueberry Sunshine Blue

One of the only evergreen Blueberries with beautiful ornamental value on top of bumper crops.

First introduced in 1979'Sunshine Blue' was bred with several highly desirable features; it can tolerate a higher soil pH and higher temperatures, it is an evergreen and is self-pollinating while also producing sweet and tangy, great tasting fruit too! Being able to grow in soil or in a pot with a fantastic pink bloom it makes a great ornamental plant for the patio while also being able to yield 5 to 10 pounds of fruit.

The rise in the reputation of the blueberry as a superfood has also led to a great increase in popularity. The fruits are packed full of vitamin c and antioxidants and are much more palatable than some of the other superfood alternatives. Blueberries go great with cereal or as part of a smoothie and can make a great tasting jam too.

Blueberry 'Goldtraube'

Our best-selling heavy cropping varieties, the Gold traube is a reliable cultivar which will boasts the added bonus of an incredible autumn display when its leaf colour turns in September/October.

Blueberry 'Bluecrop'

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!

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.

It is important to regularly water your blueberry plant, (at least bimonthly for two months). You should also choose a location where there is enough space between bushes, depending on whether your variety is a dwarfing half-high, or more vigorous. Please see below for our planting guidance:

  • Dig a hole that is twice the radius of the rootball.
  • Before planting, drench your plant’s rootball.
  • Place the pot in the planting hole, making sure that it sits no lower than an inch below the ground.
  • Fill the planting hole with a mix of compost and garden soil, and add fertiliser and mycorrhizal fungi. Take care to not compress the soil.
  • Once you are happy with your efforts, provide your plant with a good watering.
  • Add mulch on top (whether bark and wood chippings, compost, manure, leaf-mould, and stones). Try to keep the mulch from touching the stem.
  • Apply fertiliser, and replace decomposed mulch come spring.
Blueberry plants are wonderfully easy to grow. Below we address some common query topics:

  • Hardiness: Blueberry plants derive from North America, which can have much colder winters than the UK. Therefore, mild winters are less likely to damage your blueberry plant.
  • Position: In the UK, the greatest barrier to successful fruiting is a lack of sunlight, so planting in full sun is recommended. However, blueberries still tolerate light shade.
  • Soil: Blueberry plants are suited to acidic soils below 5.5 pH, and anything above this will reduce the amount of nutrients they absorb. You can increase the acidity of your soil by watering with rainwater, and using pine needles and ericaceous compost as mulch. With chalky soils, you are better off planting in pots and filling them with ericaceous compost. It also is important that you avoid waterlogged soils, which will starve your blueberry plant of oxygen.
