Winter and summer

The highbush blueberry plant is well capable of dealing with the changeable weather Belgium is reputed for. Night frost, chilly rainy summer or torrential rains: the blueberry plant is a highly dependable and indomitable plant.

Perennial

The plant has ‘eternal life’. Properly looked after, Vaccinium Corymbosum will allow you to enjoy its intense flavours year after year.

Low maintenance

In spite of its maintenance-friendly character, we advise ensuring the soil is properly moist, especially on hot days. So when the weather is hot, be sure to water the plant on a regular basis, giving it some extra water. Feel free to prune the plant, but only in due course and confined to the oldest twigs.

Acidic soil

To get the most from your plant, plant Vaccinium in an acidic soil. A pH value between 4 and 5 is perfect. If your soil lacks in acidity, mix some turf, bark, humus or spruce soil in with the earth and add water.
