A mid-season variety which produces a heavy crop of light blue berries that are full of flavour. It is a vigorous shrub with an upright habit and has good drought resistance. Like all blueberries it must have moist acidic soil to flourish. Even without the added bonus of delicious berries it does make an attractive deciduous shrub with white flowers in spring and striking autumn colours.

  • Garden care: Prepare the ground well before planting. Blueberries can also be grown in large pots and containers if ericaceous compost is used. Prune in winter cutting out dead or damaged branches. In spring feed with sulphate of ammonia sulphate of potash and bonemeal and top-dress with ericaceous compost.
