If possible, cranberry bushes should be watered with rainwater because the lime contained in tap water will reduce the acidity in the soil over time. As fruits begin to develop, cover the plants with netting to protect the berries from birds. Cranberries require little pruning except for the occasional removal of damaged or misplaced shoots. Culinary note: Cranberries, are high in vitamins and nutrients. If made into a juice, gargled then swallowed, it can be used as an effective treatment for sore throats, coughs and colds.
Cranberries plants require a well drained, acid soil in a sunny or semi shaded position. When growing cranberry plants in areas where acid soil does not naturally occur, try planting them in patio containers using a mix of ericaceous compost and John Innes No. 3.
