Blueberries are perfect for growing in containers and make a great addition to a sunny patio. Brigitta Blue is a self-pollinating late variety bearing large clusters of superior quality berries packed full of vitamins.

 

In late spring it produces waxy, bell-shaped, white flowers which are followed by the large, firm, light sky blue blueberries with a crisp texture and a good balance of sweet and tangy flavour.

 

This variety has a long shelf-life making them ideal for freezing but can also been eaten freshly picked.

How to take care of Brigitta Blue

Water the root ball upon receipt. If you want to grow in the open ground, the soil must be well drained humus(rich dark organic material) acidy and also retains some moisture, if your soil is not acidic plant them in containers or ask your local garden centre for rhododendron soil.

Keep the plants in a sunny location, sheltered from strong winds. Once established they need little water, sometimes rainwater is sufficient but do not allow the soil to dry out especially during their flowering and bearing fruit season.

Apply fertilizer in growing season when you see new growth. Apply a mulch in winter to protect them from the frost or if they are in a container, place the container in a greenhouse. They will bear fruit in the 2nd or 3rd year, on the more vigorous shoots from August onwards.

Plants need little pruning the first three years. On mature plants cut back some old branches that have borne fruit to the base and remove damaged or diseased shoots. Best planted in groups for pollination.
