Blueberries are one of the most versatile and easiest to grow fruiting plants, suitable for pots in a sunny courtyard or mass planted in a large garden. With the potential for each plant to produce up to 5kg of fruit each when established it’s easy to see why gardeners are planting a few different varieties to extend the season.

Successful Potted Blueberries

  • If planting in pots use Camellia and Azalea premium potting mix. Select a pot at least 40cm diameter.
  • Allow for free drainage and only place a saucer under the pot for short periods of time.
  • Place pots where they receive at least 6 hours of sun per day and preferably protected from hot afternoon sun.
  • Fertilise with PowerFeed Controlled Release Flowers, Fruit and Citrus at the start of every season and don’t allow the soil to dry out.
  • Prune lightly after fruiting to encourage new growth.
  • Avoid pruning in winter as this will remove the fruiting wood for the following season.
