    I have some in pots that I keep forgetting to water in summer so meagre crops. Pink Lady did very well despite the neglect this year!
    I want to get some as a border hedge but haven't got round to testing the soil in the new place yet to see how they will fair...

        Just my few cents for those that find this thread in the future:

        I planted 9 blueberry bushes in total during the 2020 pandemic.
        3x Elisabeth
        3x Reka
        3x Spartan

        The first year was dry as a bone so I had to water them almost every day.
        The birds thanked me as they got all the berries before I even got near them...

        Besides that, they made new shoots (1-2 per plant) directly from the rootstock and seemed happy. So I am hoping for a bountiful harvest this year.

          I always have to cover mine with fleece to stop the blackbirds even before they're ripe enough for us to eat.
          I've got Spartan, Top hat Chandler and a few others.
          Have to grow them in pots the soil isn't suitable for them in my garden.
