Product Information

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

Little Blue Wonder is the result of dedicated breeding work to produce a compact, hardy blueberry and it certainly fulfils the brief. Growing to just 40-60cm high it's hardy down to -30C and makes the ideal specimen plant for patios and balconies in containers and for gardens too - just remember to use ericaceous (slightly acidic pH) compost though as all blueberries are lime intolerant.

Highly ornamental, in spring the bush becomes covered in pale flowers - so much so that it has earned this blueberry the name the 'Heather Blueberry'. Then in autumn, the foliage will provide a bright flourish of burgundy red colour before falling off for the winter.

Supplied as an established plant in a 9cm pot ready for immediate planting.

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 - dont 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.
