Supplied as young plants in 9cm pots they are ready for planting straight out into the garden.

The collection includes one each of the following outstanding varieties-

Blueberry ‘Sunshine Blue’

A self-fertile, dwarf variety that grows reliably nationwide, reaching a height and spread of around 90cm (3ft), producing heavy crops of medium sized berries in mid-July with an excellent flavour.  Like all blueberries, ‘Sunshine Blue’ requires an acid soil but can also be grown in containers using an ericaceous compost.

Blackcurrant ‘Big Ben’

An outstanding blackcurrant variety that produces shiny black fruits that are over double the size of standard blackcurrants, but with a much sweeter flavour making them suitable for picking and eating fresh, straight off of the bush.  ‘Big Ben’ crops extremely heavily from late June/July and has recently been awarded the coveted ‘Award of Garden Merit’ by the Royal Horticultural Society.

Gooseberry ‘Xenia’

So sweet they can be eaten straight from the bush, this modern, vigorous dessert gooseberry has less thorns than other gooseberry varieties and produces heavy crops of attractive large red fruits, which can weigh up to 14g each, ripening in late June.  It also displays some resistance to mildew.
