Sweet and juicy, packed full of vitamins and picked from your own garden! Blueberries 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 blueberries to ensure good pollination.
Who would have thought it? A pink blueberry! This unique new variety provides year-round colour and interest in the garden - not to mention deliciously sweet fruit with a lovely firm texture. The pink-white, bell shaped flowers provide plenty of spring interest, followed by pale green fruits in summer, which quickly become dappled with pale pink and finally ripen to a deep glossy pink colour. As the autumn approaches, the leaves turn bright orange, fading to deep red, before falling to reveal an attractive framework of dusky red-brown winter branches.
Unlike some other companies selling Blueberry ‘Pinkberry’ we are able to supply this new variety in a 2 litre pot. Your plant will be therefore larger and more established, giving you the chance to enjoy tasty pink blueberries within the first year. As with all blueberry bushes, ‘Pinkberry’ is self-fertile but will produce a bigger crop if a second blueberry plant is present as a pollinator. Height and spread: 150cm (59").
Estimated time to cropping once planted: 4-8 months.
