Blueberry - Sunshine Blue

Blueberries are one of the most easily cultivated backyard food plants. Delicious, healthy, and fun for kids, blueberries are a must have edible plant for every home.

Modern gardeners in warm areas can use blueberries as hedges and topiaries for gardens, courtyards, and containers. Blueberries can be a little pricey in the supermarket, so why not try and grow your own?

Blueberries typically fruit from December to June. During very cold winters, blueberries can be semi-deciduous, and foliage can take on a lovely red tinge.

Swane's Nurseries 'Eat' range feature easy to grow, fruiting plants, for every back yard or balcony.
