Renowned for producing some of the best flavoured blueberries, the attractive light blue fruits appear ealy in the season, are very large and have a tangy, sweet taste. The bush has upright growth to 1.8m at maturity, which makes picking very easy and the glossy green leaves turn attractive shades of yellow and orange in autumn. Ideally these plants should be planted in well-drained sandy loam with lots of additional organic matter.Garden care: Prepare the ground well before planting. Blueberries can also be grown in large pots and containers if ericaceous compost is used. Prune in winter, cutting out dead or damaged branches. In spring, feed with sulphate of ammonia, sulphate of potash and bonemeal and top-dress with ericaceous compost.
