Blaeberries , Vaccinium myrtillus, the Scottish blueberry, can be cultivated for domestic use in Scottish gardens, but need specially prepared acid soil.
John has added plenty pine needle leaf mould, and sulphur chips, well in advance of planting, then applied a fertiliser treatment of sulphate of ammonia and sulphate of iron which will feed the plants and also help to acidify the soil.
Under these good growing conditions the fruit size is comparable to the fruit from high bush blueberries.
