Blueberry bushes

Posted: 08/09/2012 at 08:03

This year I have had a much better crop than I have had in any previous 5 years, I am guessing they take time to get established. I think the reason they have done so well though is because of the high rainfall we have had.  My berries are what I would consider big, really pleased I am.

I grow them too but cant remember the variety.  Yes do net them as I had the same problem.  I havnt had much of a crop so not sure what to do there. My plants are 3 to 4 yrs old.  Do I need to prune?

Really easy to take cuttings.  Not sure I can explan though.  I have placed them in water in a glass in the house and you can see the roots appear or place half a dozen around a pot and place in a sheltered space in your garden and forget about them for a while.  You need to just snap off a non flowering shoot and remove the lower leaves pop in compost and hey presto.

I enjoyed the programme too.  It has inspired me to choose plants based on the pollen factor first then the wow factor.  Thanks Sarah
