Seems like every shop you go into these days, have special offers on punnets of blueberries, but still there is nothing like the thrill of growing your own and they are actually quite easy to grow. While I am waiting for mine to appear, I have a punnet of those special offer blueberries in the fridge ready for adding to my thick american style pancakes, or for mixing a batch of blueberry muffins.
The trick to growing blueberries is to plant them in lime-free soil. This is sold in garden centres as ericaceous potting compost. Make sure the soil doesn’t dry out so keep it moist and you will have nice juicy berries for those pies. Now, the only problem is keeping off the birds who love the fruit. I have some light netting which I picked up cheaply in Lidl and so far that seems to have done the trick.
