This plant is deciduous so it will lose all its leaves in autumn, then fresh new foliage appears again each spring.

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: prefers moist but well-drained, acidic soil or ericaceous compost in a pot.
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    The neat and compact habit of this blueberry gives it a Buxus-like look, but it has the added bonus of a bumper crop of delicious blueberries. It's ideal for pots, but it will also make a wonderful addition to the front of a border, and can even be used to create a low hedge. The spring flowers are attractive to bees, while the autumnal tones that the foliage takes on before it is shed adds another layer of interest.

  • Garden care: Prepare the ground well before planting. Prune in winter, cutting out dead or damaged branches. In spring, feed with sulphate of ammonia, sulphate of potash and bonemeal and top-dress with ericaceous compost.
