Blue berry bushes

Posted: 02/03/2014 at 17:01

Hello everybody , thanks for the advise , have been out and bought some ericaccous compost today and planted them in open pots in the ground also seemed a good idea to put some ericaccous stuff in the bottom of the hole 

I have to say this site is great for practical advise , much better than just reading books or the internet , once again many thanks

Just bought 2 blue berry bushes , wondered if anybody has any tips for looking after them ?

The best type of greenhouse is the one you can afford , new or second hand

My only tip is that you may need to check drainage over the next year and may need to put in a drain or soak away

best of luck
