Description How to Grow More Info Delivery Reviews
This superb mid to late season variety produces an abundance of delicious, juicy berries in late summer; fantastic for extending the fruiting season when grown with an early-maturing variety. Clusters of pretty white, bell-shaped flowers in spring are followed by fiery red foliage in the autumn, making this a valuable hardy shrub for seasonal interest in the garden. Blueberry 'Powder Blue' is an attractive addition to patio containers or acidic borders, and the fruits are a tasty addition to jams, pies and muffins. Height and spread if left unpruned: 2.5m (8'). Supplied in a 9cm pot.

Blueberry 'Powder Blue' is ideal for growing with other blueberry varieties as it is not reliably self fertile, requiring cross pollination for a good crop. For the best crops we highly recommend our superb 3 plant collection - comprising 2 of the amazing Blueberry 'Pink Sapphire'™ plus 1 delicious Blueberry 'Powder Blue', you will benefit from greatly increased cross pollination and ensure even larger yields of mouth-watering blueberries. Click here to view the collection. These shrubs are sturdy and make gorgeous features for the patio or borders, with sweetly scented creamy white flowers in spring, and bold crimson autumn foliage.

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.
