Now more than ever is the time to grow something tasty from home and this is your chance to grow your very own crop of incredibly tasty blueberries on your patio - yummy!
This veritable super food 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!
Besides tasting great, blueberries will also provide true season-long interest for your garden with wonderfully fragrant tubular blossom in spring, followed by delicious fruits that form and colour up ready for picking from July onwards. then in autumn, the foliage will provide a bright flourish of scarlet colour before falling off for the winter.
As the blossom appears in late spring, it is rarely affected by frosts and you can expect a bumper harvest once fully established. Blueberries make brilliant patio plants too and will grow perfectly in pots.
Do remember to use ericaceous (slightly acidic pH) compost though when planting as all blueberries are lime intolerant.
Supplied as an established plant in a 2L pot, ready for immediate planting out or potting up.
