Autumn is a great time to purchase any soft fruit but you may buy blueberry plants from Spring Reach Nursery all year round subject to availability. Blueberry plants need a sunny location and can be grown in large pots or containers. Blueberries prefer an acid soil or lime free soil. (Ericaceous compost) They are best bought in pairs, preferably opposite varieties for maximum fruiting. Two blueberry plants will produce approx 5kg of fruit in 5 years.
Blueberries fruit on two or three year old wood. New bushes need little pruning for the first 2 years but cut out weak shoots to provide a strong basic framework. Thereafter, prune to ensure a regular production of new shoots from the base. The fruits ripen over a period of several weeks. Pick over the bushes carefully, harvesting only the ripe fruits which part easily from the clusters. The fruits may be eaten by birds so provide protection by netting the bush. Blueberries may be successfully stored for later use by preserving, bottling or freezing.
