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.

Blueberry Top Hat 2011-07-16

I ordered 2+1 of this type of Blueberry. I was constructing a fruit cage on my allotment and wanted to establish a few plants to accomodate my love of this fruit. Unfortunately the plants arrived before I had the fruit cage ready. I therefore decided to replant in a larger plant pot to keep them going for a couple of weeks. until the cage was ready Because of restricted height I decide to bury 3ft deep containers in the existing beds. I then placed a layer of about 3 inches of polystyrene chippings to assist drainage. Then I topped up with Ericaceous compost before re-planting the berry plants. Finally watering well with rainwater I had collected in barrels I have on site. I can report that the plants are all flourishing and I look forward to eventually having a great crop of my favourite fruit. Well done Van Meuwen for supplying healthy well looked after plants.
