Vaccinium Corymbosum ' Blueray ' Blueberry plants 5 litre: Blueray is a large upright shrub, which produces very large light blue berries, matched with an excellent sweet flavour, these berries are also highly resistant to cracking. Blueberry plants produce fruit that grows on old wood, all our plants are hand selected by us, so all have old wood present, this way we can guarantee your shrub will produce from year one. 'Blueray' will flower in May and will produce fruit from Mid July, the harvest will go on for weeks. Whilst relatively rare in the UK Blueray has quickly become a favourite in the USA due to the size and sweetness of berries it produces.

What to expect: Your plant will arrive planted in a large 5 litre/23cm pot, and will have a minimum actual plant size of 40cm. It will depending on the time of year purchased look just like the pictures.

Planting Position: For best results plant in full sun through to partial shade. In well drained moist soil.

Soil: All our Blueberry plants are part of the 'Vaccinium Corymbosum' family so whilst not classed as fully ericaceous or lime hating, they are better suited and will produce more fruits in acid soils.

Suitable for container planting: Yes ideal. We would recommend planting in John Innes Ericaceous compost, this is a loam based lime free compost with essential foods for acid liking plants.

Eventual height and spread: Upto 1.5 metres high with a spread of approximately 1 metre.

Growth habit: Upright, bushy.

Flowering Period: May

Pruning: Not necessary, but if required should be done end of winter through the start of spring.

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 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.
