This patio fruit collection comprises of 1 each of the following plants:
Blueberry Blue Sapphire
This small and compact blueberry is one of the best we’ve seen for growing on the patio. Naturally dwarf and only growing to a height of 60cm/24in. It’s small but mighty! Easy to grow and care for, plant in ericaceous compost to keep the plant looking at it’s best. The attractive white blooms, striped pink are followed by delicious berries from June to July.
Blackberry Black Cascade
Much breeding work has been carried out on blackberries over the past few years with some interesting and exciting results, and this new variety is no exception! A breakthrough in blackberry breeding now means it is possible to pick deliciously sweet tasting blackberriesfrom outside of the kitchen door, and harvest up to 1.3kg (2.8lbs) of fruit from one hanging basket!
Black Cascade is thornless, will fruit in its first year, and three plants will be enough to fill a 14-16in/35-40cm hanging basket. Plants are compact and produce arching, thornless and trailing stems which become loaded with fruit from August through to October. The berries are large and sweet, perfect for eating fresh as well as for making pies, crumbles and jam. No more scrambling through the hedgerows to find fresh blackberries, just plant up a hanging basket or patio container with Black Cascade and enjoy harvesting tasty blackberries from the patio!
A breakthrough in soft fruit breeding has created this wonderful new variety which looks like a strawberry, but tastes like a strawberry and raspberry combined – just delicious! The plants grow in a similar way to strawberries and are easy to maintain. They can also be grown in hanging baskets and containers and placed near the kitchen door for easy picking!
During numerous trial visits last summer, we were trilled to be shown some very unusual berries, and due to the popularity of Blackberry Black Cascade and the Framberry we introduced last year, we thought we'd offer some new selections for you to try.
Supplied in 9cm pots, the plants will arrive ready for immediate planting into larger patio containers, or for adding to the fruit garden.
