Care of The Plant

Growing blueberries require an acid soil that has a high organic matter with a pH in the range of 4.0-5.5, if grown in a container, an ericaceous potting compost should be used. Blueberries prefer a sheltered sunny spot in the garden, but they can be grown in partial shade, sheltered from cold winds and frost pockets and make a hole big enough to accommodate the complete root system, plant and then water well.

In the garden, plant 1.2m (4′) apart, applying a dressing of bone meal. Once planted, mulch with bark to a depth of 10- 15cm (4-6″), this will retain moisture, suppress weeds and maintain the organic content of the soil. When cultivating around the bush, take care not to damage the plants as they are shallow rooted. In hard water areas rainwater only should be used.

Pruning Blueberry Bushes

Blueberries require little in the way of pruning which is carried out in winter. Remove any weak, dead, damaged or diseased wood and in the first few years remove the tips of the branches. Blueberries fruit on branches that are 2-3 years old. To encourage new growth, remove a number of older branches that have fruited.

Harvesting Blueberries

Birds can be a problem and bushes should be covered with netting just as the fruit starts to ripen. Harvest the berries when fully ripe or they will have an acid taste.

Pick the fruit when they have started to soften and come away easily, this is normally 7-10 days after they have turned blue. Pick the fruit by gently rolling the berry between thumb and forefinger to separate them from the stem. Not all fruit ripens at the same time and several pickings will be necessary. The fruit can be frozen or stored in the refrigerator for about two weeks.

Perfect for patios!

The plants arrived today, all in tact looking healthy and they had plastic around the base to stop the soil falling out. As with previous reviews can I suggest that the words 'live plants' are added to box as the Royal Mail delivery person was attempting to post the plants throuhg an open small porch window, desptite the note saying 'if not in leave with a neighbour'.He did not wait for me to answer the door and so was interrupted as he attempted to push the box through! Plants look great, some issues with lack of commuincaton and I needed to ask when they were being delivered as ordered in July. Looking forward to the fruit now.

Fast delivery, Bushes arrived this morning 5 days after placing order. Plants look extremely healthy, no broken stems or branches. The bushes arrived in pots with polythene wrapped around the pots so no loss of soil. Mother's Day presents so fingers crossed got the right ones. I'm extremely happy with the blueberry bushes couldn't ask for better for the money.

My plants arrived in perfect condition. Although like another reviewer I was concerned that there was no packing around the plants some improvements had been made. Each pot was inside a plastic bag secured with an elastic band so no soil lost. Also short canes were inserted into pot the exact size of the box so held secure with no damage to growth. My main gripe which cost it 5 stars is that the box was delivered with nothing to say "Contains live Plants" so it was just as well I was in.
