Blueberries are a very rewarding fruit to grow. Not only do you get the colourful, delicious fruit to eat, but the bushes also put on a spectacular display in autumn with fiery reds and purples colouring the foliage. The taste of freshly picked blueberries is sensational and the fruit is healthy and packed with antioxidants.
Blueberry Bluecrop is one of the most reliable croppers. It is a mid-season variety producing high yields of large, tasty fruit that is ready to pick in mid-summer.
Your blueberry plant may produce a small crop in its first year, but will crop reliably and heavily from then on for many years.
Blueberries need an acidic, lime free soil. If your soil is chalky/alkaline, they are perfect for growing in containers using an ericaceous compost.
