Bluejay Blueberry

Description: Bluejay is a vigorous, strong growing variety that produces good flavoured fruits. A reliable cropper. Beautiful white bell-shaped spring flowers and attractive orange-red autumn colours. Delicious when eaten fresh and for cooking.

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!
