Blueberry (Giant Patriot)
These giant Blueberry 'Patriot' are a great addition to the garden for those that are looking to grow their own fruit! This impressive specimen yields a heavy crop of fruit during July and August as well as producing fragrant foliage which is highly attractive to bees and other pollinators. Known by nutritionists as a so-called 'super food', the humble blueberry has enjoyed a surge in popularity in recent years due to its health benefits which include supposed anti-aging, fat burning properties and high levels of vitamin C. Great as a potted plant for on the patio, the disease resistant and cold-hardy Blueberry Giant Patriot produces some of the largest and most flavoursome fruits of all blueberry varieties.
Blueberries are relatively easy to look after. Ensure the soil has a constant pH of 5.5 or lower, to avoid plants developing lime-induced chlorosis and associated iron deficiency. Acidifying materials can be added at planting, but check the pH of the soil in spring and add sulphur chips if the pH needs to be lowered. This shouldn¡¯t be necessary with container-grown plants provided ericaceous fertiliser and rainwater are used.
