Product Information

Widely regarded as yielding one of the best superfruits, these dwarf blueberry bushes will make an attractive feature whether planted in pots on your patio or directly in the ground – as well as giving you an abundance of sweet-tasting berries to enjoy.

Blueberry 'Blue Sapphire' will be smothered in pink-tinged white blooms in May, followed quickly by a bumper crop of delicious, deep-blue, juicy berries from June to July, each one packing a punch with antioxidants and vitamins.

The flowers will attract bees and butterflies into your garden, but beware – the birds will love the berries and strip them from your bush the moment they ripen unless you protect the plant with netting. If you can place the bushes in a fruit cage, all the better!

This hardy perennial prefers full sun or partial shade in acidic soil. Use ericaceous compost when planting in containers or mix some into the soil before planting in the ground. When the plants are established, use an ericaceous feed for maximum fruiting.

Supplied as 3 x Blueberry 'Blue Sapphire' jumbo plugs ready to plant. Will grow to 60cm height x 60cm spread.

Top Tips

  • While tolerant of shade, blueberries crop better in the sun.
  • Cover plants with netting when in fruit, otherwise you will 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 will also easily pull away from the cluster.
  • Although self-fertile and able to produce a good crop on their own, blueberry bushes 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.
  • Once established, 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 February to early March, 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.
