Vaccinium corybosum "Earliblue" - Early Season Bushes
These are blueberry plants for the addict! Earliblue complements Chandler as it starts fruiting at the beginning of July, so adding four weeks of picking in your bed of blueberry plants. The berries are large, quite a light blue and sweet and Earliblue makes harvesting easy as the fruit are carried in good sized clusters. Like any blueberry, not only do the berries taste good, but they are jam packed with anti-oxidants and anti-cancer agents.
Earliblue is bigger than Chandler, growing to about 180 cms - 5ft 9" cms. It has strong shoots and large, glossy foliage. Like all blueberry plants it needs moist, acidic, free-draining soil to crop well. Blueberries are members of the heather family and should be given the same growing conditions as other heather. If you have not grown blueberry plants before, or for more information on how to grow blueberries outside, take a look at our Guide to Growing Blueberry Plants in Open Ground.
Delivery: The basic delivery charge for orders of bareroot plants is £9.49 + vat, which increases to £12.55 + vat if you add any pot-grown plants, standard trees or fruit trees to the order. Because couriers sometimes experience delays, we schedule delivery by week, not by day. Therefore, please plan your planting day for the weekend at the end of the delivery week or for the week following delivery, at the earliest. You can choose the delivery week that suits you during checkout and we will email you the day before your plants are due to arrive.
Payment: We do not charge your card until we begin to prepare your order for packing.
Guarantee: If any plants die within a year, we will replace them. We only ask that you follow our planting & growing instructions and sent us clear photographs of the dead plants in situ, so we can help to make sure that the replacement plants succeed. You only pay for the delivery of the replacements.
Please note that our guarantee is void if there is a hosepipe ban in your area: your newly planted hedging must be watered in dry weather while it is establishing. The best way to water is very thoroughly every few days: at least once a week if there is no heavy rain.
Our nursery has been supplying container grown and bareroot hedging plants to gardeners, farmers and town planners since 1949. Our website started in 2003, so we do understand the concerns that you may have about buying hedging plants online. If any of your plants are damaged when they arrive or if you are otherwise not satisfied with your order after you inspect it, please repackage it and contact us. We will give you a refund or send replacements and send a courier to come and collect the unwanted plants.
I just wanted to say how very pleased I am with the trees I ordered from you. They arrived on Thursday. Sue Coates
I just wanted to thank you for your continued support. We were initially warned to be wary buying any kind of trees of hedging from an online supplier, but you have proved any suspicions were totally unfounded. Not only were you very competitive on price, your continued support has been invaluable. Our first planting did not go strictly as planned, but your advice, professionalism and customer service has been second to none. You have been patient, courteous, always respond promptly and provided sound professional advice. I have found this level of service totally refreshing, and would have no hesitation in recommending Ashridge Trees to any future potential customers. Thank you once again. Sam Dey
