Blueberries are sweet and juicy, packed full of vitamins and picked from your own garden! Blueberry plants are easy to grow and care for, but do need an acid soil. If you're unsure of your soil type, you can grow them in large containers in ericaceous compost. For best results, grow two different types of blueberry varieties to ensure good pollination.
Blueberry 'Brigitta' (Late season)
Vaccinium corymbosum, Highbush Blueberry
Not reliably self fertile - requires a pollinator.
A late season variety producing large, light blue fruits on sturdy upright bushes that ripen towards the end of August. The firm, tasty fruits have a crisp texture making them ideal for freezing as well as eating fresh from the bush. Blueberry 'Brigitta' is ideal for growing with other blueberry varieties as it is not reliably self fertile, requiring cross pollination for a good crop.
Blueberry bushes make attractive shrubs for the patio or acidic borders, bearing masses of sweetly scented creamy white flowers in spring, and fiery crimson autumn foliage. Blueberries are packed with health-boosting compounds and are especially delicious in pies, muffins and jams. Height and spread: 180cm (71").
Estimated time to cropping once planted: 4-8 months.
