Caring for your Mountain Cranberry

Plants can be grown in the garden or containers but must have acidic/ericaceous compost to thrive. Cranberry plants must be kept moist and will take 2-3 years before they fruit. Alternatively, seeds can be placed in the fridge for 3 months and sown in January/February.

Growing Information

Sow seeds into trays/pots of moist acidic compost and lightly cover with more compost from September to December and keep outside in a cold frame or sheltered place, making sure the compost does not dry out. Seeds need a period of cold before they will germinate, so will sprout the following spring. When large enough to handle, transplant to individual pots and grow on.
