Blueberry Vaccinium 'Reka' - Organic blue-green

Vaccinium corybosum 'Reka'
Aromatic berries from your own garden
An explosion of flavour! Sweet, aromatic berries grown at home. The grower has cultivated the blueberry 'Reka' (Vaccinium corymbosum) organically. A delicious fruit for jam-making, baking, or eating straight from the bush. Butterflies and bees also adore the sweet berries. 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 the tree extra water during dry spells.
The plant is grown organically. In other words, no chemical pesticides have been used to grow the plant. For a healthy garden!

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.
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.
