Interesting Berries

It wasn't that long ago that the idea of growing a Cranberry in the UK was considered more than interesting! But as the interest in 'superfoods' has increased so has the quest for growing the more and more 'exotic' - something we are interested in ourselves!

To this end we are now not only growing Cranberries (obviously), but also such delights as Bilberries, Chokeberries and Huckleberries! So what better way to make a truly productive kitchen garden or allotment than with the addition of an interesting berry or two? All can be grown in containers or the ground alike. More...

Originating in their wild form from scrubland or woodland areas across this interesting group of berries (they are not all related by family or genus) are just as happy growing in our own gardens or containers!

All are now afforded the esteemed status of 'superfood', thanks to the high vitamin and antioxidant content of the fruit. These berries can be eaten raw, used in jams and jellies, or dried, stored and used in cooking and baking as required. Although Cranberries and Huckleberries in particular are well known as an American export, they can easily be grown right here in the UK. Bilberry plants have also naturalised into many a hedgerow or scrubland.

Many of these plants require acidic soil conditions to thrive (check our individual descriptions of the plants); if you're planning on planting these in open ground, then you will need to ensure that your soil is enriched with ericaceous soil or compost, so that the pH is around 4.5 - 5.5.

We supply pot-grown berry plants direct from our nursery in Kent, with each plant pruned to the appropriate height. And you needn't worry about cross-fertilisation, as each variety that we offer is self-fertile, meaning it requires no pollination partner in order to produce those nutrient-rich berries!
