Edd, just checked Trehanes site.......only one offer but why not email them asking if they have mature bushes on Offer?  Good time of year to plant them now

Edd, contact Trehane/Dorset blueberry company.  Check their site.  they will recommend varieties to complement.  

I bought 3 large bushes as one of their offers but they seem to regularly advertise deals.  

You need to have decent size containers....window boxes are bit small but why not email Trehanes after you have read their site?  I find them very helpful.

Good morning everybody.  Blue sky appearing now but it is windy.  

It's a big worry......

Hiya Edd.  mine are in pots 60 cmwide amd deep. ,they were purchased as 3 year old plants and been growing for me for 3 or 4 years.  One plant per pot,,of course.  I also plunge them in the soil....I think it prevents drying out too quickly.

So far, touch wood, good crops.  

It's a big worry......

Ah!  On very large clumps I take to the saw.  Straight down the parlance!  I then try to pull off the cut tubers to leave clumps intact.  Usually works very well.  Then into pots of dry mpc
