A guide to choosing the right size

All orders are despatched in one delivery. If your order contains both bare root and container grown plants then we can only despatch when all plants are ready.

1&3 Litre = Container grown and can be planted all year round. The size refers to the number of litres of compost that the container holds.
1 Year Plant = A one year old plant the size depends on the variety but in general they will be 20-25cm in height.
2 Year Bush = A two year old plant that has been pruned back in the first winter to form a bush shape. Generally plants will be 50-60cm and more bushy than the 1 year old. 

Blueberries will need planting at a minimum of 1.5 metres apart if planted into the soil or raised beds. 

Blueberry growing guide: If you have purchased your blueberry plant during its winter dormant season, then there is no need to do anything except plant it, until the plant emerges from the winter. You will notice that the buds swell as spring draws nearer. The large, fat buds near the tips of the shoots are your flowers and fruit this season and the smaller ones are shoots and leaves. As temperatures rise, these buds burst open and growth starts.

Spring: When the leaves have emerged fully, usually towards the end of April, your plant will need its first feed. A balanced ericaceous fertiliser (rhododendron/azalea fertiliser) is recommended.

Summer: Repeat feeding the plant at the end of June because blueberries have a second stage of growth in late summer. The whole of your plants' root system should be kept moist throughout the growing season, preferably using rainwater as this tends to be acidic. As the fruit starts to colour, try to cover the plants with bird netting to avoid theft of your precious blueberries. In mid to late summer, long canes will grow up through the bush. This is the framework for the future. Pinching out the tips of this growth will encourage a bushy plant, as done for fuchsias and chrysanthemums.

Winter: Pruning is carried out after leaf fall, in mid winter while the plants are dormant. For the first two years after planting, your bushes will need very little pruning, except general tidying up and shortening of very long canes to encourage branching.

All the heathland berries have one fundamental feature in common. They must have moist and distinctly acid soil. Provided this need is met they are easy to grow.

If growing in containers then plant using ericaceous compost.

Blueberry Bluecrop

Blueberry & Cranberry | Genus Vaccinium | Vaccinium corymbosum

Mid Season Variety - This popular variety should always be chosen for planting either by itself or in a collection of varieties. Vigorous upright habit. Bell shaped flowers in spring followed by heavy crops of good flavoured fruit. Excellent autumn foliage. Considered the best all around variety for consistent yields with large, high quality fruit, and disease resistance. Bluecrop is an upright, open growing bush to 4-6 feet. There are other varieties with better ornamental value but none better in the garden.

The 3l potted plant arrived in excellent condition with lovely foliage. I also bought a similar Bluecrop from my local garden centre. Unfortunately the Blackmore plant flowered very late with tiny flowers which produced teeny-weeny sour fruit even though it had the best sunny spot. My other 3 blueberry plants produced good crops of sweet plump berries.

I was previously very pleased with the blueberries I bought from this company, but this variety was not as healthy as the others I bought. But delivered quickly.

I would like to say how pleased I am with your attention to detail. I ordered my husband a blueberry bush for his birthday and asked you to delay delivery until nearer that date. It arrived the day before his birthday in perfect condition. There was no hassle, I am thoroughly pleased with the product and your service, thank you.

10 out of 10 Blackmoor – really sturdy and healthy looking Blueberry bush, can’t wait for the blueberries, I purchased the Rootgrow product and Empathy Ericaceous Seaweed Fertiliser to make sure I give the bush the best possible start. Thank you Blackmoor for a really smooth transaction, it was a pleasure purchasing from you.
