Blueberry Mid Season Fruiting

R195.00

Our Blueberry plants are self-pollinating but will bear a bigger yield and richer fruit if cross pollinated. They can be planted during any season, however, if planting in the hotter months, care must be taken to not let the roots dry out. They may go into shock during transit or replanting but are otherwise very resilient.
Cold hardy and can be container grown. We recommend approximately 50cm wide as the roots spread 60cm and to allow good drainage 50cm depth

Soil preparation is the same for both pot and garden planting. Minimum soils required Lithuanian or Canadian Spaghnum Peat Moss in a bag of Acid Compost. Berry fertiliser is recommended rather than any other products. Less is more for your Blueberry plants when it comes to fertilising.

Step by step picture video on how to plant: 

Position – Full sun or semi-shade – especially in the morning.

Size – Approximate Height 1.5m Width 1m.

Soil – Acidic. Ph between 4.2 and 5 (VERY important)
Our farmer has taken many years of research and trials to perfect the soil mixture for maximum harvest.

Acid compost is the base soil, and Lithuanian Sphagnum Peat Moss is the minimum soil requirement. Berry mix Volcanic Rock Dust and Pine Bark Mulch.

The Peat Moss must be soaked in water for, at least 24 hours before planting as it absorbs a lot of water initially and your plant roots will not receive water.

Place acid compost into the pot/hole and then add soaked peat moss, berry mix and volcanic rock dust to the top section and mix well. Gently place the plant (try not to disturb the roots) in the soil mixture and cover the roots (not the stem) with Pine Bark Mulch.

Blueberries are salt and nitrate sensitive. Nitrates and chlorides should be avoided in fertiliser blends for blueberry plants.
Blueberry plants DO NOT like any manure or harsh chemical fertiliser. If you have a worm farm REFRAIN from using the fertiliser for Blueberry plants
