Vaccinium corymbosum 'Little Blue Wonder'
Healthy and compact
Small berries with a wonderfully refreshing taste and sky blue colour. The blueberry 'Little Blue Wonder' (Vaccinium corymbosum) lives up to its name. It is one of the most compact berry bushes and looks wonderful in the garden! The berries are not only very tasty, but also healthy. The sweet berry is packed full of antioxidants. The perennial fruit bush blossoms in the spring when it reveals its beautiful white and pink flowers. A crop will be ready to harvest from summer onwards in the second year after planting.
Sufficient light is needed to ensure good growth. For this reason, the fruit bush should be planted in full sun. The blueberry thrives in acidic, moist soil. It's best to give it extra water during dry spells.

Seasonal effects

The appearance of fruit trees and shrubs changes between seasons. From a bare plant lying dormant in winter to fresh greenery in spring, in full bloom during summer to leaves changing colour and dropping in autumn. This is a natural process courtesy of mother nature. Our plants will be delivered accordingly.

Planting+

Prepare a large hole for Vaccinium corymbosum and loosen the soil with a fork. Blueberries prefer an acidic soil, improve yours with peat and mulch from a pine woodland if possible. Make sure that the blueberry root ball is moistened well – place it in a bucket of luke warm water for a while. Plant the root ball at the correct depth in the hole – the top of the root ball should be just below ground level. Refill the hole with soil and press firmly down. Water immediately after planting. Planting distance is 1.5 m apart. A spot in the sun or partial shade is best for your blueberry. Shade is acceptable and does no harm. Fairly damp soil is ok.

Blueberries in a large planter

Did you know that a blueberry bush will also thrive in a large planter on your patio or decking? A blueberry bush in a planter will remain somewhat more compact so of course it's perfectly suitable for on the patio/decking. And you can always prune it too.
Do choose a nice sturdy planter. Layer the base with potsherds or even a couple of bricks for weight then fill about 2/3 with potting compost with some added sand and normal garden soil. Remove the blueberry bush from its nursery pot and plant it with the roots spread out a little. Fill up with more of the same potting compost. Press well in. Leave a good 4 cm space from top of soil to the edge of the pot, for watering. Water generously then stand your large planter with blueberry bush in a nice sunny spot.

Care+

Giant blueberry shrubs should be fertilised in the spring with a calcium rich fertiliser (potash) and mulched with garden compost. Shade does no harm. Water well in periods of drought. Berries can be picked when they are a nice blue colour and begin to feel soft. Pinkish white flowers appear in April-May followed by berries in July-August. First berries are ripe in June and the last are ripe in August. Great for eating fresh, but they are also suitable for making jam. Freezing works well too. Blueberry bushes require little pruning. Keep around six to eight stems per bush. Regularly remove the oldest stems to encourage new growth.

Blueberries in the winter

Blueberry bushes are perfectly hardy and can basically manage through the winter without extra protection. However, potted bushes are of course more sensitive to frost so we advise standing the pot in a sheltered spot over the winter. An unheated shed for a short while would be ok too.

Extra+

The Blueberry is an easily cultivated fruit shrub that can reach two metres high and blossoms with attractive pale pink flowers in the spring. In autumn you can enjoy the bright flaming colours. 
You can make the most amazing home made jam with these giant blueberries. Blueberries are very healthy and are full of vitamin C.
Vaccinium belong to the Ericaceae family (heather like plants).
