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.
This collection will provide 3 months of harvest from June until September with each bush providing up to 5kg (over 10lbs) of fruit per season once fully established. Blueberries make brilliant patio plants and will grow perfectly in pots.
Do remember to use ericaceous (slightly acidic pH) compost though as all blueberries are lime intolerant. In autumn, the foliage will provide a bright flourish of scarlet colour before falling off for the winter.
The collection comprises 3 varieties, selected for their wide harvest period and ease of growth in your home garden.
Yellowberry: A real novelty, the warm yellow leaves are tinged with pink and orange tones and make for an altogether highly decorative plant for the kitchen garden.
Bluedrop: A new type of blueberry, 'Bluedrop' brings a new dimension to this popular berry. Everbearing with teardrop-shaped fruits (hence its name) you'll experience a taste sensation with an abundance of balanced, sweet and sharp blueberries.
Fruits June to September
Littleblue Wonder: 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.
