RHS Plants for Pollinators

Vaccinium 'Miniblues'

A new variety with vigorous growth and excellent tasting fruit.The firm texture and vibrant colour makes them a favourite for cooking with. Hardy and easy to grow, this deciduous shub takes on brilliant autumn colour before losing its leaves. Partially self-fertile, but planting more than one variety improves yield.

Plant Care

Plant in moist, ericaceous soil, don't allow the soil to dry out. Perfect for patio containers if acidic garden soil is not available. Feed in spring with an ericaceous fertiliser.

Planting Instructions

Water thoroughly, or stand pot in a container of water for half an hour before planting. Dig a hole twice the size of the root ball. Remove the pot, place the plant in the hole so that the root ball is level with the surrounding ground and refill, firming if necessary. Keep well watered in dry weather. Feed in spring with a good, general fertiliser.
