Step into the world of Sunshine Blue – a semi-dwarf, versatile semi-deciduous blueberry that dazzles with its vibrant hot pink flowers, gracefully fading to delicate white in the spring. But that's just the beginning – prepare for a bountiful harvest of juicy, delectable berries.

Sunshine Blue stands tall as a beacon of adaptability, thriving in soils with higher pH levels unlike many of its counterparts. And here's the kicker – it's self-fertile, ensuring a plentiful yield without the need for a partner plant. As a Southern Highbush variety, it boasts a low chilling requirement of just 150 hours, making it a natural fit for subtropical climates. Yet, don't let its tropical origins fool you – Sunshine Blue showcases surprising cold-hardiness, making it a charming addition to patios and gardens even in cooler regions.

Growing Tips for Your Raspberry Seedlings:

  1. Location: Choose a sunny spot in your garden with well-draining soil for your raspberry plants. Raspberries thrive in fertile, well-drained soil, so make sure to prepare your planting area accordingly.

  2. Planting: When planting your raspberry seedlings, space them according to the recommendations provided. Ensure each plant has enough room to grow and spread out as they mature, typically about 2-3 feet apart in rows with 6-8 feet between rows.

  3. Watering: Keep the soil consistently moist, especially during the growing season and dry periods. Aim for about 1-2 inches of water per week, either through rainfall or supplemental watering, ensuring the soil stays evenly moist but not waterlogged.

  4. Mulching: Apply a layer of organic mulch, such as straw, compost, or wood chips, around your raspberry plants to conserve moisture, suppress weeds, and regulate soil temperature. Leave a small gap around the stems to prevent rot and allow air circulation.

  5. Pruning: Regular pruning is key to maintaining healthy raspberry plants and maximising fruit production. Prune out any dead, damaged, or diseased canes, as well as any weak or spindly growth. Additionally, prune out any canes that have already borne fruit, as raspberries produce on second-year canes.
