VACCINIUM corymbosum BLUEBERRY Pink Lemonade 3L

A real garden novelty, this unique variety is the result of many years of research and development by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA).  Pink Lemonade brings blueberries to a whole new level – providing year round colour and interest in the garden.  The blush white, bell-shaped flowers provide plenty of spring interest, these are then followed by pale green fruits in the summer which become dappled with pale pink and finally ripen to a deep glossy pink colour.  In autumn the leaves turn bright orange, fading to deep red, before falling to reveal an attractive framework of dusky red-brown branches in winter.  The fruit is deliciously sweet and has a lovely firm texture.  Eventual height and spread: 1.5m (5ftm).  Cropping season: August/September.  Self fertile, but cross pollination will encourage a greater yield.

This plant is supplied in a 3L pot.

Plant 1.5m (5ft) apart in rows 2m (6ft) apart.

Plant in an open sunny spot in a moist acid, but well-drained soil.  Can also be successfully grown in pots with ericaceous compost.

Planting:

Soak the root-ball before planting.  Plant in a hole twice the diameter of the root-ball or pot.  Mix an organic soil improver and general fertiliser with the infill soil.  Water regularly with lime-free water until established.

After Care:

Thin out dense bushes by reducing branches by one-third every 2-3 years in winter.  Apply a general fertiliser in spring.
