Blueberry 'Powder Blue'
A low chill rabbiteye blueberry that produces beautiful powdery blushed fruit in most climates. Suitable for hedging. Plant with ‘Brightwell’ to improve pollination. Hardy and one of the easiest varieties to grow.
Low chill variety. 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, 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.
