Bluegold Blueberry

Description: Bluegold is a mid to late season variety, vigorous but low-growing, with high yields. Ideal for growing in pots and produces very tasty berries. The fruit has a longer life than most other varieties. Attractive white spring flowers, golden autumn foliage and yellow stems in the winter.

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. Pruning is rarely needed in the first two years. After that you should prune in late February to early March. Remove a quarter of the branches every year to keep the plant productive. If you would like to eat the fruits yourself, don't forget to cover the plant to stop the birds getting them!
