'Earliblue' produces clusters of large, light blue berries from early July, which when planted with later fruiting varieties adds several weeks onto the usual blueberry season. The masses of fragrant, creamy white flowers in spring and striking crimson autumn foliage also add to the appeal of this bush.
Although self-fertile, plant with another blueberry for cross pollination. A single bush will fruit, but yields will be higher and more prolific with another bush, such as Blueberry 'Bluecrop'. Excellent for using in pies, jams and baking.
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.
