Chandler Blueberry

Description: Chandler is an attractive stout blueberry bush that produces enormous, firm juicy berries. A superb choice for large blueberries, delicious in pies, jams and muffins. Vigorous, upright growth, good for patio growing. Also has very attractive autumn colour and beautiful clusters of white spring flowers.

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!
