Grow Your Own Blueberry Bushes

In stock now.

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!

Hi guys how many plants in an 8 by 3 foot bed? I have filled mine with Ericacious compost and put mypex over it Should I refertilise and if so with what? I’ve lots of envirnogrind ready to go Also in a new bed can I useyour veg soil mix or do I need more compost/?
Answered by Niall
on September 14th, 2020
Hi Patrick 4 plants up the centre of the bed. If you have just Ericacious soil in the bed then there is no need to add anything else. For the standard bed if you have Veg soil mix you don't need anything else added as there are plenty of nutrients in this mix Diarmuid

Hi, I was reading elsewhere it's best to have two varieties of blueberries for better pollination. Which combination of varieties would work well here?
Answered by Niall
on April 04th, 2020
Hi Kim To be honest. Once they are different varieties it doesn't really matter but Berkley and Bluecrop tend to do very well together Niall Quickcrop
Asked By Noreen
on March 13th, 2020
What is the best of year to plant the BlueBerries? You mention it needs acid soil. Does it need alot of sun also?
Answered by Niall
on March 13th, 2020
Hi Noreen Anytime from November to late March early April is the best time to plant them. The need Acidic soil but you can buy this to add to the soil you are planting them in. It is typically called Ericaceous soil and available on our site but in most garden centres. The more sun the plants get the more fruit you will get as a rule Niall Quickcrop
Asked By Adrian Gallagher
on October 02nd, 2019
What size pot do these come in?
Answered by Niall
on October 02nd, 2019
Hi Adrian They can vary. But either a 3 inch round pot or a 4 inch square pot. It depends on stock. The plants are normally 10 to 14 inches high Niall Quickcrop
Asked By Alan Richardson
on August 01st, 2019
What size container would be suitable for your blueberries.
Answered by Andrew
on August 01st, 2019
Hi Alan. Blue berries will grow on to be large bushes so will need a container of 12 to 18 inches deep. They are also acid loving plants so will need ericaceous (acidic) compost. I hope this helps. Andrew

Thanks. I thought this but they are in warmer place so hopefully! Another month. Glad to know it's not just me!

Hi, Im back with a query about the blueberry plants I received last autumn! I followed all Instructions, thank you! However one plant is flowering slightly and the other one is pretty dormant? Is this normal? I had them on cooler part of garden so gonna move to warmer part to see?
Answered by Niall
on May 03rd, 2018
Hi Rozz Due to the cold Spring so far very little of my own Blueberries are doing much so far and they are well established. Give it another few weeks and if nothing is happening then i will send you on some new plants Regards Niall Quickcrop
Asked By Huw Jones Jenkins
on November 20th, 2017
What is the size of the blueberry plants that you sell? Are they bare-rooted or in pots? How long will it be before they start to fruit? Thanks Huw
Answered by Andrew
on November 20th, 2017
Hi Huw. The plants are anywhere from 14 inches to 18 inches high and are in a pot alright. You will have fruit in year one but only small amounts. By year two you will have a decent amount of fruit.
Asked By Rozz
on September 05th, 2017
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
on September 07th, 2017
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.
Asked By Rozz
on September 03rd, 2017
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
Answered by Andrew
on September 04th, 2017
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.
Asked By Fiona
on January 11th, 2017
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
on November 12th, 2015
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
on November 12th, 2015
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.
