Fast growing fruit bushes
Shop our range of the best fast growing fruit bushes, perfect for the impatient gardener who wants fruit fast! Fruit bushes are surprising easy to grow and incredibly rewarding come harvest time. There is nothing better than enjoying the taste of your own, home grown fruit , tasting better than anything you'll find in the supermarket. Soft fruit bushes can be grown in the border, a container, grow bag or even a hanging basket in some cases. The best quick growing fruit plants include blackberry bushes, blueberries, cranberry, goji, gooseberry, grape vine, hazelnut, kiwi, loganberry, raspberry, rhubarb, strawberry and whitecurrant. Blackberries are easy to grow and pest and disease resistant, producing sweet and juicy fruits in one year old canes in late summer. They may be trained in a variety of ways – over a pergola or arch, in a fan against a wall, or even in a container on the patio.
Blueberries may be evergreen or deciduous, effortlessly producing a vitamin-rich summer crop after dainty white flowers. Gooseberries are self-fertile with thorny stems, reliably producing an abundant crop, especially for their size, without needing pollination. Grape vines can be trained up walls, trellis, arches or pergolas and look particularly stunning when laden with fruit. Raspberries are popular, vigorous, self-fertile cane plants which come in summer-fruiting and autumn-fruit varieties. Rhubarb is a tasty, low maintenance perennial vegetable, meaning it dies down in autumn only to bounce back with incredible vigour in the spring. Strawberries offer a quintessential taste of British summertime with their characteristic aroma, bright red colour, juicy texture and sweetness.
