These are a must for any edible garden! The fruit is the native equivalent to a blueberry. In late summer and early autumn, the plant will burst with a profusion of small, sweet tasting berries. Yum.
Considered to be the new age version of the box hedge, this is a versatile small shrub that is perfect for filling gaps and is ideal to grow in full sun or part shade. The shrub will grow to about 50 – 100cm in height and about 100cm in width.
The new growth is a lovely burgundy colour. Small white star-shaped flowers appear in summer and if the shrub is well-fed, then you can almost guarantee a strong yummy harvest of berries. If you trim the shrub lightly after harvesting, then you should be rewarded with another crop the following season.

You can plant the coir pot directly into the ground, which will eliminate root disturbance and help keep your plant happy. The roots will make their way through the pot and into the soil. The pot itself will decompose within about two months in healthy, watered soil.
