    Top Tips

    While tolerant of shade, blueberries crop better in the sun.
    Cover plants with netting when in fruit, otherwise you'll just end up feeding the birds!
    Pick over the plants several times as not all the fruit ripens at the same time.
    Fruits can be left on the bush for a few more days after they turn blue for a more intense and complex flavour, when they'll also easily pull away from the cluster.
    Although self fertile and able to produce a good crop on their own, blueberries yield much more heavily if planted near another one.

    Care Information

    • Plant in well-drained, acidic soil in a sunny, sheltered spot.
    • If your garden soil has a pH over 5.5, your blueberry is best grown in a pot, in ericaceous soil. Keep it well-watered - don’t allow the soil to dry out.
    • Water blueberries with rainwater if you can as tap water will gradually raise pH levels.
    • Feed every month with a liquid fertiliser for ericaceous (lime-hating) plants.
    • If growing blueberries in the garden, add plenty of organic matter such as pine needles or composted conifer clippings. Avoid farmyard manure as it will scorch the roots.
    • Pruning is rarely needed in the first two years. After that prune in late Feb – early Mar, aiming to remove a proportion of old wood every year. Two year-old wood is the most productive.
    • Take out any damaged, dead, and diseased wood and prune out low branches that will lie on the ground when full of fruit.
