Looking after your Blueberry Bush
These instructions are sent with the plant gift
Also known as Bilberries, blueberry bushes produce delicious berries, great for fruit salads, pies, jams and of course Muffins. This blueberry bush is a heavy cropper and will do well in a sunny or partially sunny spot in the garden.
Blueberry plants need a moist well drained acid soil (a ph of 4.0-6.0 is ideal) to crop well, but they will also do well in a pot on the patio. Blueberry plants have a very fine shallow root system making them susceptible to drying out. Water thoroughout the summer to ensure the soil remains moist. A thorough weekly drench should be fine in the ground, but if in pots you may need to water your blueberry bush more often. If you find the soil is drying out between waterings or if you will be away for a few days, you can always stand the pots in a shallow tray of water.
Over the summer, the white bell shaped flowers will develop into plump blueberry fruits ready for harvesting in August.
The most common source of problems with blueberry plants is underwatering it is essential not to let the fragile roots dry out. Water regularly and thoroughly. Blueberry bushes are generally quite resistant to pests and do not need pruning.
The fruits are ripe when they have turned a deep purple black and can be washed and eaten straight from the bush.
