When I'm not on my bike, you'll find me in my organic-ish garden in #Cumbria. Favourite plants? Wisteria, hellebores, paeonies, philadelphus...

Vaccinium corymbosum

So for those of you interested, this is what “notes” looks l like. Go to your plant list & find the plant you want to add a note to. Click on the little pencil and then “edit notes” & away you go. You can satisfy your organised side 😉😂 #notes #gt-premium

Just had a go. Learn something new every day. Still wish the nomenclature could be either or Latin/common as Rich suggested @richard.spicer.7906 in Feb x x x

Do you like #blueberries ? My soil isn't acidic enough to grow them in the ground but they are incredibly easy to grow in a pot. These are Spartan, Giant Patriot (I think) & Fruiting Dixi. Soooo tasty! And yes, another place to put all those #tealeaves

We love blueberries in my family! I grow mine in a raised bed, as my soil isn't what they prefer either.

I really don't know why people bother buying them Mona! The bought ones are so tasteless in comparison. I've been really impressed by how many we get. Yum yum!!! @emve

I must admit that we still buy some, and you are right they taste like water, but the kids enjoy them while waiting for our own. I only have two bushes (don't ask which kind, I only remember that they aren't the same type), but I have taken some cuttings that look promising.

Haha! Don't worry it's not an offence! Good luck with your cuttings Mona @emve

Is Stacey a blueberry fan by any chance @gjones ? @seclarke

gjones

Yes I believe she is, they're hardy in our province but the soil isn't acidic enough. Growing them in large pots would be a possible solution. @declare @awomanonabike

Just bought plant from Sam's club, is there any suggestions you have to make plant do well

Hi Cat, They like acidic soil and to be moist all the time. Mine are in plastic pots (not so pretty but if means they don't dry out) against a SW facing wall. I have a little solar powered drip feeder attached to a water butt so when the sun shines they get water (I would never remember otherwise). Other than that I leave them to get in with it. Oh, but they do also have a net round them now as a couple of years ago the blackbirds found them! 😉 @catchilders
