Blueberry plant - not growing?



  • I agree that it looks a poor specimen, whatever it is.  Blueberries are actually quite difficult to grow properly unless you have the right conditions, even in a pot.  I devote far too much time to mine, watering with rainwater and mulching with pine needles. If it is a blackcurrant you will find it much easier, and they are equally nutritious. The new sweeter and dwarfer varieties of blackcurrant are good eaten straight from the bush.

    Hello everyone! Just wanted to let you know that after all these weeks, today I was about to get rid of the plant thinking it was dead, and instead I found this ⬆️⬆️

    I will wait a bit longer and see what happens! X

    Those aren’t black currant leaves ... but they might be blueberry leaves...
