Product Information

This veritable superfood is believed to carry all manner of health benefits and is recommended by health experts and dietitians accordingly.

Packed full of vitamins and minerals as well as antioxidants, they are not only really good for you, but they taste great too!

Blueberries provide true season-long interest and will produce wonderfully fragrant tubular blossom in spring, followed by delicious fruits that form and colour up ready for picking from June onwards.

A new hybrid, here's the thing that makes 'Flamingo' stand out - its beautiful pink-flushed, variegated leaves which gradually start to appear as spring and summer progress.

A highly ornamental plant, you can add a little pizazz to your patio and grow your very own crop of incredibly tasty blueberries.

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

Planting Advice for your Blueberry:

  • 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 - donít allow the soil to dry out.


Aftercare Advice for 'Flamingo Blueberry:

  • 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 Advice for Blueberries:

  • Pruning is rarely needed in the first two years. After that prune in late Feb Ė 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.
