Blueberries require a well drained, acid soil in a sunny or semi shaded position. In areas where acid soil does not naturally occur, grow blueberry plants in patio containers using a mix of ericaceous compost and John Innes No. 3.
If possible, blueberries should be watered with rainwater because the lime contained in tap water will reduce the acidity in the soil over time. Blueberries will begin to produce fruit in their third year. As fruits begin to develop, cover the plants with netting to protect the berries from birds. From their third year, begin to prune out the oldest stems each autumn to promote new growth and maintain a healthy plant framework.

Culinary: The fruit of Blueberry 'Brigitta' are particularly suitable for freezing.

  1. Very pleased

    By Emily Li 03-04-2014

    Bought last spring, two of them even fruited (tiny amount though) in the summer. They have grown larger a lot and are full of flower buds. Pretty and promising!

  2. Thriving!

    By Marianne Guest 06-10-2010

    These really healthy little plants arrived earlier this year, and 4 months on are growing so well that I have had to re-pot them twice already. Am looking forward to a great crop in the spring, and for many years to come.
