Large Blueberry Plants Vaccinium Corymbosum Spartan 10 litre: Spartan is a large upright spreading shrub, making it a good choice if you want a plant that is easier to pick from. It produces medium to large light blue berries, matched with an excellent tangy sweet flavour. 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. 'Spartan' is classed as an early cropping plant it will flower in May and will beging producing fruits from approximately mid June. Classed as self fertile but as qwith all Blueberries will do better if planted in proximity of other Blueberry plants, always plant in acidic soil or ericaceous compost. Large established plants as photographed that will produce fruit from year one.  

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.

Growth habit: Upright, spreading

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.
