Growing your own blueberries is easy

Blueberry plants are a great addition to any garden as they're easy to grow. If your garden soil is not naturally acidic, plant your blueberries in a container of ericaceous compost and feed with ericaceous fertiliser. For most people's needs, one or two blueberry varieties are enough so it's important to choose the best varieties. Our Best Buys will reward you with delicious crops over several months. They're great for baking blueberry muffins or blueberry-crumble-topped sponge cake or for eating raw. Many people are interested in the potential health benefits of eating blueberries. The fruits contain anthocyanins and various phytochemicals, which are being researched to understand their potential role in reducing risks of diseases such as cancer.
