Description:
Blueberry Vitality has a place in all gardens and outdoor spaces; being evergreen and growing 1m x 1m it makes a perfect low hedge and a great productive pot plant. Light pink flowers appear during winter followed by fruit from late spring through to summer. When fruit is ripe, harvest and enjoy. An oversupply of fruit is very easily frozen for later use.

Borders / Shrubbery, Coastal Garden, Courtyard, Edible Garden, Foliage Feature / Colour, Hedging / Screening, Mass Planting, Container / Pot

Pests & Diseases: Generally trouble free

Cultural Notes: If planting in a pot ensure you use a high quality acidic mix that will drain freely. Blueberry Vitality prefers a full sun to partly shaded position and is not bothered by frost; in fact overnight winter temperatures of below 5 degrees are required to promote flowering. When fruiting has finished prune back to half the size and fertilise with an acidic fertiliser. Information and images courtesy of Touch of Class Plants.
