Blueberry Berkeley is a tall growing variety that produce a heavy crops of very large berries mid to late season. Berkeley is a vigorous, strong grower with widely spaced branches growing between 4ft (120cm) to 6ft (180cm) in height. Berkeley fruit is considered the best blueberry variety for freezing but are at their most delicious eaten fresh.

Bushes can grow to 1.8m in an open, upright habit. Blueberries will benefit from annual pruning to restrict size and to keep productive. Like all heathland plants blueberries need to be planted in an acidic soil with a pH of 5.5 or lower. If you do not have an acidic garden soil all blueberries are best grown in large pots of ericaceous compost which is specially formulated for acid loving plants.

Nutritional Information:
Like all blueberries the Berkeley variety is rich in antioxidants and flavinoids. They promote great digestive and cardiovascular health and are counted among the ten best superfoods. They are also a source of a certain dietary fibre that aids digestive health.

Healthy potted plant received. Have it sitting outside for the winter and will plant up in the spring. Intend looking up basic care instructions on soil type and pruning instructions to put beside it to help with future care as I know ill forget by this time next year. Would be great to get a "care label"with it to put beside it.!

Asked By Sean

I have following questions: 1. How many plants would you need to produce enough fruit for 500g per week? 2. I assume that you can plant these in soil with compost? 3. Does frost effect these plants? Thanks, Sean
Answered by Niall

Hi Sean 3 to 4 plants should give you that volume of crop however you would need to be sure to keep them netted as the birds will take more than you ever can. You need to put Ericaceous compost in when planting and frost is not an issue at all Niall Quickcrop

Can blueberries be pollinated from any other plants or do I have to plant two blueberry bushes for the best results? Near where I want to put my blueberry container I have three raspberry bushes and a blackberry plant. We also have an Apple tree and a fig tree nearby.

Do the blueberry plants need hardening off? What size pots would be suitable for growing the blueberries?
Answered by Niall
on February 26th, 2018
Hi Stephen No the blueberry plants will already have been well hardened off before you receive them. They come in 4 inch pots but the larger the pot you can put them in the better. 12 inch or above would be great and the larger the pot the more crop you will get as the roots have more space to feed. You will need to add Ericaceous soil to the pot as Blueberries need an acidic soil Regards Niall Quickcrop

Will blueberries grow in a polytunnel
Answered by Andrew
on March 06th, 2017
Hi Leslie. Blueberries will grow in a polytunnel but remember they need an acidic or 'ericaceous' compost. Unless you can dedicate a raised to them in the tunnel I would advise growing in pots. They are originally a heathland plant used to cooler conditions so if it was me I would be inclined to grow them outside. I hope this helps. Andrew

What is best time to plant blueberry plants ?
Answered by Andrew
on July 27th, 2016
Hi Chris. You can plant blueberry plants any time of the year if they are in pots. We have them in stock from October until March which is when we plant them but this is more that the plants are cheaper at that time of year than because it is a better time. Make sure you use an acid or ericaceous compost as they are acid loving plants. I hope this helps. Andrew
