Description How to Grow More Info Delivery
This late cropping variety produces plenty of deliciously sweet fruits in August. Blueberry 'Colour Bells Blue Patio' has a neat, upright habit that makes it well-suited to growing in containers. It makes a fine ornamental plant too, with urn-shaped flowers in spring, which are loved by pollinating insects. In autumn, the green foliage turns to brilliant red and orange. Although self-fertile, like all Blueberries it will produce heavier crops when grown with a pollination partner. Height and spread: Up to 180cm (71").

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

Blueberries require a well drained, acid soil in a sunny or semi shaded position. In areas where acid soil does not naturally occur, grow blueberry plants in patio containers using a mix of ericaceous compost and John Innes No. 3.
If possible, blueberries should be watered with rainwater because the lime contained in tap water will reduce the acidity in the soil over time. Blueberries will begin to produce fruit in their third year. As fruits begin to develop, cover the plants with netting to protect the berries from birds. From their third year, begin to prune out the oldest stems each autumn to promote new growth and maintain a healthy plant framework.
