Grow Your Own Blueberry Bushes

Dispatch of Blueberries starts the 1st week of November until the end of April

Blue Crop is an excellent variety of blueberry in cooler climates, it produces an early to mid season crop of large berries around mid-July. Blue crop is self pollinating but will produce larger crops if pollinated by another variety (i.e. 'Berkeley') so bushes are best grow in multiples rather than single bushes.

Bushes grow to 5-6' (180cm) tall so a lot larger than most gardeners realise. Like all heathland plants blueberries require an acid or ericaceous soil. If your soil is not acid blueberries are best grown in large pots filled with an ericacous compost. If your garden soil is acidic (rhododendrons and azaleas will naturally grow well) blueberries make an fantastic fruiting hedge with crops of delicious berries and fiery bright red foliage in the Autumn.

Blueberries contain a plant compound called anthocyanin. This gives blueberries both their blue color and many of their health benefits. Blueberries are very high in antioxidants, contain Vitamin C & K, and dietary fibre that increases digestive health and also increase cardiovascular health.

The plant was in condition on arrival and waited well until it could be planted. Will only be able to give a better rating once I see it grow!

Andrew, thanks! I am going to order some now, two for a friend. When you say 12 inch pots, is that diameter or in length? (Sorry if foolish question!) and how much compost would I need on average for four plants in said pots! I want to make sure I order the whole lot together! Rozz
Answered by Andrew

Hi Rozz. Its actually a good question. 12 inches x 12 inches roughly and you will need about 2 x 50 litre bags of compost to fill 4 of these.

Hi, Andrew/Niall! Thanks for all your help to date. If we order blueberry plants, how big should the pots be? Hope this is not a silly question. As by looking at your info, they like acidic soil so in the ground just wouldn't work? Do they cope with the frost? Thanks, Rozz

Hi Roz. Typically i would put them in 12 inch pots to start off for the first 2 years and then move them in to larger pots after that. You are of course right in relation to putting them in pots with Ericaceous soil and they are fine outside overwinter in the frosts.

If I were to plant these now, should I expect to have fruit this year or does it take a year or two to yield fruit?
Answered by Andrew
on January 12th, 2017
Good question Fiona. Yes you will get fruit this year. As the plant gets bigger it will obviously give more crop. It normally takes 3 years before the Blueberry plants reaches maturity from when you receive it.
Asked By Rachael
on January 09th, 2017
Can they be planted out right away? Or kept indoors until warmer? I'm a new gardener.
Answered by Andrew
on January 10th, 2017
Hi Rachael. No they can be potted up and planted out straight away as they will be dormant in a pot when they arrive to you so you just pot them on to a bigger pot and put them out.
Asked By John Heinzel

How old (big) are your plants, and how long do they take to start cropping?
Answered by Andrew
on November 12th, 2015
Hi John. Blueberry lants are 6-10 inches tall and will start cropping late next Summer. I hope this helps. Andrew
Answered by Andrew

They are six months old and roughly 10/12 inches high. If you put them in this Autumn you will have crop from them in 2016.
