Foliage: Whilst most people grow Blueberry plants for the masses of fruit they produce, they also make lovely additions to the garden as flowering shrubs. Leaves are glossy green in summer then a beautiful scarlet red in autumn, it produces a profusion of pinky/white blossoms in late spring.

Evergreen: No deciduous

Winter hardy: Yes, very tough shrubs will cope well with extreme cold temperatures.

All our Blueberry varieties are self-pollinating, so it is not necessary to plant in the vicinity of other blueberry plants, that being said if you have room for more than 1 plant, fruit production will be more plentiful. Should only be fertilised once, early in the year this should be be done with a food designed for Acid preferring plants, do not fertilise after the blooming period as they may cause the plants to have a late growth spurt, which could result in winter damage
