Hailed by nutritionists as a so-called 'super food', the humble blueberry has enjoyed a surge in popularity in recent years, and it isn't difficult to see why. Not only are blueberries celebrated for their high levels of vitamin C and antioxidants, but they also taste delicious when cooked into jams and desserts, and are highly rewarding to grow as a potted shrub. The versatile and compact Blueberry Top Hat produces white flowers during spring which develop slowly into fruits come summer before its foliage finally turns reddish-green as autumn approaches. One of our best-selling varieties, the Top Hat Blueberry plant will thrive in a patio container, and grows to a mature height of just 50cm tall making it the perfect choice where space in minimal. Top Hat bushes produce fruit from July to August each year.

Pruning

Cut back in Winter to remove unwanted or damaged shoots.

Blueberries will need to be planted in fertile, acidic soil (so plant with plenty of peat). Plant deep as reproduction/new growth are by underground suckers.
They will thrive with regular nitrogen feeding and like regular doses of manure. They are self-fertile, but heavy crops are achieved by cross pollination between two plants.
