I bought 3 little cranberry plants online last year, possibly from Van Meuwen (?), something like 3 for £9.99, and put one each in it's own planter (the square plastic type). I put an inch or so of sand as a top layer, I read online somewhere that this is beneficial to the plants (?). Maybe to just stop the fruits getting dirty.......
I'm pleased to say that all 3 plants are going great guns, and are shooting out all over the place. There are a good few handfuls of cranberries on each plant, massive, about twice the size of blueberries, like marbles !!!
I didn't pick them this winter, but they're all still there (birds haven't nicked them), so maybe I'll pick them soon, and cook down into a sauce / jelly. I live in NE Scotland, haven't fed or watered the plants, and they seem to be doing very well so far !!
Good luck if you try growing them.
