Patriot Blueberry

Description: Patriot is an early season variety. A vigorous bush, highly productive bearing medium slightly flat fruit of excellent flavour. Easy for picking and suits any part of the UK climate. Lovely red and gold autumn colour and beautiful clusters of creamy-white flowers in the spring. Best eaten fresh but also good in pies and jams.

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!
