Blueberries are easy-to-grow, compact, productive fruit bushes, effortlessly producing an abundant crop through the summer. They can be either evergreen or deciduous, with deciduous varieties displaying fabulous fiery red autumnal colour, and usually grow to around 1.5m high, allowing you to get a strong crop whatever the size of your garden. Attractive, dainty white flowers are produced in early summer, followed by sweet and juicy blueberries, borne in clusters and packed full of vitamins. Whilst blueberries are pest and disease-free, they do require an acidic soil, similar to the requirements of rhododendrons and camellias. If you're unsure of your soil type, simply grow them in containers in an ericaceous compost - they make superb patio specimens delivering ornamental value as well as delicious fruits. For best results, grow 2 different types of blueberries together to ensure good pollination.
