Blueberry bushes need moist, free draining and distinctly acidic soils. Their best chance of growing successfully is when planted in soil with a ph of below 5.5 (or planted in a large pot or tub with ericaceous compost), and in an area that is reasonably sunny and sheltered from strong winds. Blueberry plants can eventually grow to a height and spread of around 5ft, producing delicious fruit in midsummer and intense red foliage in autumn. Spring will bring dense pink flowers to the blueberry plant.
