Earliblue Blueberry

Blueberry

Description: Earliblue is selected as the best early season variety, superior to Bluetta. Upright bush and easy to grow. Medium-large light blue fruit, sweetly flavoured. Clusters of creamy white flowers in the spring and crimson autumn foliage. Great for patios or small gardens.

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!

Pollination Partners: Blueberry Bluecrop Blueberry Chandler Blueberry Liberty Blueberry Northland Blueberry Patriot Blueberry Sunshine Blue All blueberries are partially self-fertile, planting more than one variety helps improve yield.
