Fancy making your own Cranberry Sauce this Christmas and even for many years to come? With this amazing self-fertile, evergreen shrub - you can!
This lingonberry reliably produces fruit in the UK climate unlike the big fruited american cranberry. The fruits are slightly smaller than a cranberry but also have a thinner skin, this low growing, hardy Vaccinium Fireballs would make a wonderfully unusual addition to any outdoor space. With clusters of white, bell shaped flowers in the Summer transforming into masses of brilliant red fruits, this fully hardy shrub provides interest all year round and there is nothing like picking your own fruits. The fruits will hold well on the plant so there is no mad rush to pick them all in one go and it is also self-fertile so no need to buy multiple plants (although it is tempting!) and the plant will be earlier to flower and fruit in subsequent years.
We’re also sending you a decorative, festive pot in which to place your Vaccinium to enhance this wonderful Christmas display.
When planting into the garden use acidic Ericaceous compost or in some soils use Sulphur Soil granules that can be used to maintain the required PH in your soil. Both of these are available on our website as well as ericaceous compost if planting up into the pot.
