How to Use Bushel & Berry Sapphire Cascade Blueberry in the Landscape

Although this is a self-pollinating variety, you'll want to add several for the largest harvest. Mix with Bushel & Berry Midnight Cascade in an alternating series of baskets along your porch.

You can also consider this plant a "Spiller" and use at the edge of oversized containers to soften the look. Use a compact variety like Bushel & Berry Peach Sorbet at the main "Thiller" in your Blueberry container garden.

These plants like acidic soil with a soil pH below 5.5; so pot them in ericaceous planting mix designed for acid loving plants. For long-term success, we recommend you start collecting pH neutral rainwater to water them.

Please make sure the pots or baskets you are using to grow Sapphire Cascade have plenty of drainage holes. Keep pots up off of your patio with bricks or clay pot feet.

Go ahead and include these trailing, cascading habit fruit bushes into a mixed garden bed. They'll make a hard-working groundcover at the edge of your planting.

Use several plants in a large basket for a lush display. You'll be able to overwinter your baskets in a sheltered spot, and they'll come back to delight you again and again.

Let your brothers and sisters get Mom a hanging basket of annuals. You can stand out with this darling Blueberry bush as a perfect Mother's Day Gift!

She'll love it all season...year after year!

#ProPlantTips for Care

Sapphire Cascade Blueberries flower and fruit best in full sun in a spot that gets great air circulation. They need at least six hours of sunlight a day.

Give a moderate amount of water on a consistent basis.Explore automated drip irrigations for container-grown Blueberries if your municipal water isn't too alkaline.

Shape in late winter with light pruning above a pair of swelling buds at a 45-degree angle. Please keep your garden snips clean and sharp.

Give your Sapphire Cascade the nutrients they need with a slow-release fertilizer for fruiting plants. Follow the directions on application rates to avoid overfeeding.
