Blueberries and cranberries

UK Garden Centre - Information about blueberries and cranberries

42

These plants, also called whortleberry and bilberry, are present in acid moor land soils of North America, the British Isles, and across northern Europe and Asia, growing 30cm (12in) tall and in large plantations. The wild berries are much in demand in the early autumn but they are small. It was not until Dr Colville of the US Department of Agriculture introduced Vaccinium corymbosum, bearing much larger fruits, into his breeding programme that the cultivated plants took on a new popularity. Modern blueberries are as large as small black grapes and begin to colour early in August, lasting until early November depending upon variety. They can be eaten raw, with clotted cream, or used in tarts and flans or for preserves. Cranberry sauce is the accepted accompaniment for turkey.
The fruits require an acid soil, like the azalea and rhododendron, so work plenty of peat about the roots at planting time which is March. The plants also require plenty of nitrogenous manures to encourage the formation of a continuous supply of new wood upon which high quality fruit is obtained. Dig in shoddy, farmyard or poultry manure or composted straw. And in spring each year scatter on the surface around each plant 28g (1oz) of sulphate of potash and the same of superphosphate of lime, mixed together. This will also benefit from a mulch each year.
Like blackcurrants, plant deeper than other fruits, as reproduction and new growth are by underground suckers which may be detached and replanted to increase.
Plant 10cm (4in) deep and set the plants 120cm (4ft) apart, for they grow bushy and at least 120cm (4ft) tall. Plants are expensive but have a long life and bear heavily. The plants crop better if helped with their pollination, so plant two varieties together, one to give early crops, the other later. Three plants of each will provide worthwhile pickings. Blueberries turn from green to red then pale blue before turning black.
