Blueberry "Sunshine Blue"

This was an impulse purchase, spurred by the knowledge that my fledgeling
Berry Garden is rather lacking, given the complete and utter failure
of my Raspberry and Loganberry to establish

It’s a very dwarf variety, heavy cropping, with reddish foliage in Autumn

The flowers are gorgeous! A sort of rosy red… And there are absolutely masses of them!

    Possibly… A very unhappy looking plant. Have put some “Camellia Fertiliser” on it, in desperation
