The firm, medium to large, light blue berries of Blueberry 'Duke' have a mildly sweet flavour and retain their fresh quality longer than most varieties. 'Duke' blooms late, which protects the blossoms from the spring frost, but the berries then ripen early. The bushes are upright-growing, but the branches will droop to the ground when laden with fruit, often yielding over 20lbs per bush when mature. These shrubs will delight you all year round with pretty white flowers in spring, luscious berries in summer and bright red foliage in autumn. Supplied in 9cm pots.

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.
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!
