Blueberries prefer a more acidic growing media. We have developed this ericaceous compost specifically for Blueberries. We blend fine and coarse peat with pine bark to create a low pH, free draining growing media. Finally we add a control release fertiliser (which is important where fertigation is not available) as well as a base fertiliser to give an initial nutrient boost.
Blueberries like to be kept in damp (but not soaking wet) compost that is not allowed to dry out. Where you can, water with rainwater as tap water will raise the pH level.Available as 40-litre bag or Bulk bag (~1 m³) (£120.00 retail).
Soft fruit plants are relatively easy to grow. They require sun, shelter and free draining fertile soil.
We blend both fine and coarse peat with pine bark, as well as mixing in a control release fertiliser that will last the growing season. Finally a base fertiliser is added to provide that initial nutrient boost. Plants must still be watered regularly after initial planting and during dry periods, and may benefit from further feeding during the season with something like tomato feed.
NB This mix will suit most soft fruits apart from Blueberries who require a more acid growing media. See our Blueberry Mix.Available as 40-litre bag or Bulk bag (~0.85 m³) (£112.80 retail).
