Richie's survival guide
You may have heard of the Dukes of Cambridge or Sussex, but have you heard of the Blueberry Duke!? If the answer is no, then you’re in for a real sweet treat. To the dismay of his family, young Richie here (formerly known as Richard III) hung up his royal duties a few years back to pursue his dream of becoming a world renowned pastry chef. Croissants, eclairs, cannoli - you name it! Blueberry Pie is his specialty and if you ask us, we prefer a pastry prince to a stuffy HRH - but nobody asked and that’s okay too I guess… Happy picking!

What makes Richie so special
Duke Blueberry bushes (Vaccinium corymbosum 'Duke') are Highbush Blueberries, meaning the shrubs grow tall (up to six feet!) and produce larger berries than their Lowbush cousins. Due to their size, they are a great option for edible landscaping and can be used as hedges when planted in a row. They are big fans of acidic soil, so consider checking the pH of your garden soil before planting. They will produce the most blueberries when in full sun, but can also tolerate partial shade. They are cold hardy plants and can tolerate temps down to about -30 degrees C (brrr!). First thing in springtime, you’ll be treated to delicate, bell-shaped, white flowers that make way for the delicious berries that ripen early in late spring and early summer (yum!).

Good question! We measure the height from the top of the plant to the bottom of the pot (including the pot itself).
Our app will tell you exactly when and how much to feed and water your plants. Are you already a pro in taking care of your plant? Great! The App is completely optional of course.
