Sunshine Blue Blueberry

Description: Sunshine Blue is a dwarf blueberry, ideal for container growing or small gardens. Blue-greenish leaves which also make it a stunning ornamental bush. Beautiful clusters of pinkish-white spring bell-shaped flowers that are followed by heavy crops of small juicy, delicious blueberries. Semi-evergreen.

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!
