Growing Darrow Blueberries

All blueberries need free draining, acid soil (around pH 5.5) or a pot filled with ericaceous compost. Make sure the soil is consistently moist during the growing season. They require ericoid rootgrow.

When they're ripe, the berries will be purple-blue on the back, and they'll come away easily from the plant.

Although some varieties are partially self-fertile, all blueberries will crop best with pollination partners nearby. 

Aftercare: net your plants as the fruits develop and ripen, or the birds will have them all. If you're growing in pots, rainwater, not tap, is best. Pruning is simply a matter of removing any dead, diseased or damaged branches back to the base. You can do this at any time, but maybe best after fruiting to avoid any damage to the berries.
