Blackmoor Nursery is one of very few Nurseries in the UK offering gardeners the opportunity to buy Blueberry and Cranberry plants direct from our Nursery.
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 Blueberries that 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 Blueberry plant the size depends on the variety but in general they will be 20-25cm in height.
2 Year Bush = A two year old Blueberry 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 Pink Lemonade
Blueberry & Cranberry | Type Dessert | Genus Vaccinium corymbosum | Pink Lemonade Blueberry Plants For Sale | Buy Online
Mid-Late Season Variety Pink Lemonade - Who would have thought it? A pink blueberry! Pink Lemonade is the result of many years development by the United States Department of Agriculture. Pink Lemonade reaches about 5ft/1.5m high and wide, with masses of twiggy branches. The fruits begin green, then become speckled in pink and then take on a rich pink colouring as they mature in August and September. Like all blueberries, Pink Lemonade demands an acid soil and is especially happy in a large container of ericaceous compost. Although it’s self fertile, it will crop more heavily if another blueberry is planted nearby.
Blueberry Pink Lemonade: Picking time mid July.
Blueberry Pink Lemonade: Planting distance 1.5 metres (5 feet) apart

Just received the plant together with the Duke variety. The plants looks healthy and was delivered with all the leaves and stems intact. Will plant them in its pot and look forward to tasting a pink blueberry next year hopefully.

I bought this pink blueberry last August and although the plant looks healthy it has only 2 blueberries, unlike my other blueberry which cropped well in its first year and is still doing so.Unless it produces considerably better next year I would not recommend

Received this amazing shrub today to find a mass of leaves and loads of buds already and its only 7th Feb. Really pleased.

Purchased Autumn '15. Had a small crop last year, and a medium crop this year and a lot of vegetation growth this year therefore I am expecting a good crop on the new growth next year. The berries are fantastic with a distinctly different flavour to normal blueberries and certainly a 'lemonade' flavour to them. Delicious!

Have had this plant only just over this summer (2015) and wasn't expecting the dozen or so beautiful berries that appeared. Most importantly, the berries were absolutely delicious and I am looking to order a few more plants to plant alongside this one as one won't be enough for our family😀

Blueberry Pink Lemonade Growing Tips.
Care Guide For Pink Lemonade Blueberries: 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. Blueberries must be grown in moist, acid soils with a PH of between 4-5. If you can grow Rhododendrons and Azaleas in your soil without any sign of yellow leaves then you can grow Blueberries in the ground but if this is not the case then you will need to grow them in containers with ericaceous compost.
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. (IMPORTANT NOTE: Fertilisers used for tomatoes and vegetables are generally not suitable as they do not contain the correct balance of nutrients. Any form of animal manure is also unsuitable for Blueberries).
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 berries. Soft water from the mains can be used if rainwater is not available but hard water is not suitable. 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 fuschias and chrysanthemums.
Autumn: This is the time for tidying up and mulching. Do not carry out deep cultivation too close to your plant in order to avoid damaging shallow roots. The addition of well-rotted woodchip mulch to the surface around your bushes will conserve moisture and help to control weeds. 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 shoots to encourage branching. Many growers remove all or most of the flower buds in the first year. This will encourage vegetative growth instead of fruit production, thus making a more substantial plant for the following year.
The philosophy of pruning is: To stimulate new growth and keep the plant yielding large crops of big berries
To remove unproductive, diseased, dead or dying wood.
To remove branches which are too high or too low.
To thin out overcrowded branches Blueberries fruit on short lateral branches grown during the spring or early summer of the previous year. The strong branches that grow in late summer may produce fruit buds at their tips. If desired the branches can be cut back by half in winter to encourage branching, although this is at the expense of their fruiting tips.
First, remove any whippy green narrow growth from the base. This will never produce anything and is worthless. All wood that has borne fruit the previous year can then be taken back to the next strong, young growth. When this is complete, stand back, look at your bush and start detail pruning and tipping branches that have died back. This will help to reduce fungal infection in future years. The rule is "If in doubt, take it out". At the end of pruning mature bushes you should probably have removed up to 1/6 of the bush. It is very important to remove the prunings from your garden, either by burning or taking to your local refuse site.
