Blueberry Bush 'Herbert'

Blueberry Bush 'Herbert' Code: BLU002

£16.50 16.5000 In Stock New

Vaccinium 'Herbert'

A heritage variety that continues to be popular as it produces some of the largest, best flavoured blueberries. The bush is vigorous and heavy cropping.

RHS Perfect for Pollinators


Pollination: Self-fertile.


Season: July/Aug.


Plant size: 2 litre pot.


Available for delivery: all year.

 

Blueberries are very expensive to buy in the shops, yet they are easy to grow and once established will crop reliably year after year. As well as being suitable for growing in the open ground (they do require an acid soil), they are perfect for growing in containers (using an ericaceous compost). With pretty white bell shaped spring flowers, succulent summer fruits and brilliant autumn foliage, they make exceptionally good patio plants. Blueberries are self-fertile but it is best to plant two different varieties to improve pollination. Plant 1.2-1.5m (4-5ft) apart. Our blueberry bushes are supplied in pots and unless otherwise stated in the product description are available for despatch throughout the year.
