Blueberry 'O'Neal'

The spreading habit of ‘O’Neal’ makes it an ideal blueberry for the mixed shrubbery. Incredibly popular in the U.S. and Chile as a multi-purpose berry for freezing and eating fresh, ‘O’Neal’ tolerates summer heat well. Grow with another southern highbush variety such as ‘Sunshine Blue’ for the highest yields.

How to grow

Blueberries prefer an acidic soil with a pH of 4.5-5.5. Improve soils prior to planting with decomposed manure and compost. This is especially important in clay soils as blueberries prefer a free-draining soil high in organic matter. Check your pH and if you need to lower it further, try watering the soil with coffee or apply elemental sulphur. Plant in a sunny position protected from wind. Mulch with pine needles. Apply a complete fertiliser in spring. While tolerant of part shade, full sun is required for optimal fruiting.
