Blueberry Growing Tips: Happier planted in full sun or partial shade. Prefers moist, well-drained soil or ericaceous compost in a pot. Keep the plant well watered with rainwater, not tap water.

If you would like to eat the fruits yourself, don't forget to cover the plant to stop the birds getting them!
