Blueberry Bluegold - 5L Potted Plant

  • Catalogue Code 1060-5670
  • Pack Contents: 1x 5L potted plant

Extremely low in calories, the blueberry is one of the easier fruits to grow. Everyone needs a blueberry bush in their garden so look no further than the blueberry Blue Gold. They are one of the most productive fruits, providing up to five large punnets of sweet and succulent berries in the first year.

You will be able to harvest punnet after punnet each year in your own back garden. However if you do not have a lot of space, this variety of blueberry is the perfect addition to your patio or balcony, thriving in containers as well as the ground.

They provide an ornamental feature as not only can you pick the fruit through the summer as it ripens, but it will also give you glorious flame like autumn foliage when there are no more berries to harvest. These blueberries are a perfect example of a super-food full of cold-fighting antioxidants and they taste great whether eaten straight from the bush or put into smoothies or pancakes.

Your blueberry bush will arrive to you in a 5 litre pot with an already-established root network. The pot is wrapped in a polythene bag to keep the root area moist, with a layer of corrugated cardboard to keep it secure in transit. Once received, simply remove all layers and replant to a larger container, firming in well. You can transplant containerised plants at any time of the year, just avoid transplanting into frozen soils in winter or in summer in the midday sun.

Very poor quality for a plant delivered in july. Hardly any leaves, looks like it had been in cold storage since winter. Delivery instructions ignored and a hassle to collect
