BLUEBERRY Vaccinium spp

Blueberry Vines

These varieties of blueberry plants perform well in warm conditions and provide a good bounty of berries. To grow successfully provide organic matter and ample moisture along with a soil pH of 5.5, also ideal for azaleas. Blueberries make excellent potted specimens provided 25% of Peat Moss is added to the potting mix. Potted plants are a great gardening project for Children who delight in harvesting the fruit. Low chill varieties such as 'Misty' and 'Sharpblue' can be pruned after cropping to induce a second crop that will ensure a supply of delicious fruit throughout the year.
Blueberries apart from being delicious have many fantastic health benefits.  They are extremely high in antioxidants, and have anti-inflammatory properties, as well as lowering cholesterol in the blood, it is also claimed that they improve motor skills, balance and co-ordination in elderly people.  The longer the fruits are left on the bush to mature the greater the health benefits are so if you can beat the birds leave the fruits to the last minute to pick. 

Blueberry - Biloxi

A great choice for hotter climates with very little chill hours. It is often the first variety to hit the markets ripening a few weeks before other early blueberry varieties. The fruit is firm and the size is medium. Even though it fruits early it can often produce a second harvest later in the season although it's first time to fruit yields the best harvest. Best to mix with other varieties so that when this one is not fruiting another variety is.

Blueberry - Margaret

Blueberry - Margaret

A highbush selection requiring 750-1200 hours of chill, it does best on cooler climates. Earliest fruiting variety from early December. Good size fruit. Most important. Blueberries require an acid soil with a pH of 4.5 to 5.5. They also require a free draining loose friable soil. They dislike clay heavy soils. To aide the successful establishment of bushes it is best to build up beds by incorporating peat moss and garden soils at a 50/50 ratio. Peat is preferred as it is naturally acidic.

Blueberry

You must have multiple plants to get any decent amount of berries. Birds are a real nuisance. Tub growth for protection is recommended. Plants are hardy enough. Variety Biloxi is best for warmer regions. Keep moist, don't over fertilise. | David White - Newcastle, NSW 28-May-2006

The blueberries planted in prepared ground were still very slow to grow. When potted up in Azalia/Camelia potting mix they have since thrived. Correct PH is important. | Julie Fairbairn - Braybrook, VIC 18-Apr-2009

Roots are close to the surface so mulch well. Oak leaves, pine needles and used coffee grounds are all acidic and ideal for blueberries. Each spring surface dress with a small amount of blood and bone around the drip-line. All this keeps mine happy. | Julie M - Yarra Ranges, VIC 26-Sep-2011

I had several which couldn't handle Perth heat and partial (4-5 hours a day)sun. All fell over....Now have two in pots on the patio and they only get an hour of sun before sunset - and they are thriving. Plenty of berries - every day when in season. | Charles L - Perth, WA 26-Dec-2011
