Description How to Grow More Info Delivery Reviews

Blueberry 'Brigitta' is a late season variety producing large, light blue fruits on sturdy upright bushes. The firm, tasty fruits ripen in late August and have a crisp texture, making them ideal for freezing as well as eating fresh from the bush. Best grown with other blueberry varieties as it is not reliably self fertile and requires cross pollination for a good crop. Blueberry bushes make attractive shrubs for the patio or acidic borders, bearing masses of sweetly scented creamy white flowers in spring, and fiery crimson autumn foliage. Blueberries are packed with health-boosting compounds and are especially delicious in pies, muffins and jams. Height and spread: 180cm (71").

Harvest Months
Feed and water regularly throughout the growing season. Where possible, use rainwater as the lime contained in tap water will reduce the acidity in the soil over time. After the first 2 or 3 years, begin to prune out the oldest stems each autumn in order to encourage healthy new growth the following year. Remember to cover fruits with netting in summer to protect your crop from hungry birds!
Blueberries grow best in an acid soil. If you don't have acid soil, simply plant them in patio containers in ericaceous compost. When growing Blueberries in patio containers, use a mix of ericaceous compost and a soil based compost such as John Innes No. 3. Repot the plant at its original soil level and firm well into the new container. Water well and position in sun or semi shade. Alternatively, if you are gardening on acid soil, grow Blueberry plants directly in borders in a sheltered, position in moist, well drained soil.
