Upright, deciduous Blueberry with clusters of large deep blue berries from early July onwards. Extremely nutritious fruit with a high vitamin content. Delicate, white, bell shaped flowers in spring. In autumn, the leaves turn beautiful shades of orange and red.
Although self-fertile, cross-pollination does produce a greater amount of fruits. Prefers acidic, moist but well-drained soils. Prune as required in late winter. The berries are much loved by birds so may need to be netted to prevent them pilfering all the blueberries.
Buying Fruit Trees/Bushes from Jacksons Nurseries
Unlike many garden centres, supermarkets and some nurseries here at Jacksons Nurseries we sell the majority of our stock all year round. Our stock is for the most part grown outdoors making it far hardier than those grown under glass and/or only sold ‘In Season’.
Here at Jacksons Nurseries we would favour a hardy outdoor grown plant every time. They are far less likely to suffer from the shock of being planted in colder conditions and they will begin to establish more rapidly the following spring. This can mean that they don’t look like a ‘picture perfect’ plant when purchased out of season but with the correct care and a little time you’ll have a wonderful plant to enjoy for many years to come.
