Blueberry (Cyanococcus)

 

 

Could Blue berries be the world’s healthiest food? Blue berries have the highest antioxidant capacity of all fruits!

Blue berries are easy garden plants and are generally trouble free from pest and and diseases. They should be planted in and open sunny position and will grow to 1, 5 m in height with a 1 – 2 m spread. They enjoy a moist acid soil, so ensure you mulch them well with a pine bark mulch.

Attractive white small cup shaped flowers are followed by delicious bunches of berries that are generally harvested in midsummer.

Prune your blue berry bush back in winter by cutting back old dry stems. When doing this keep in mind that blueberries fruit on the tip of the previous season’s growth. Pruning will encourage new growth and will result in larger earlier fruit
