Fruit Bushes and Plants
All bushes and trees are potted and so can be planted at any time. Spring is a good time to plant.
In the spring of each year we hold our fruit bush sale. There will be a range of strong, well branched, good quality fruit bushes and trees available although stock is limited and once it is sold we don't restock until the next spring.
We have many years of experience in commercial fruit production so for commercial grade plants and expert advice on how to grow them, why not come along and have a look round the bushes and trees.
We have available all year round:
blueberry bushes of all sizes all year round. Prices from £12 for 2L potted bushes up to £40 for large mature bushes in 30L pots, plus all sizes in between. Discounts available currently on our larger mature bushes. We are blueberry specialists.

Fruit bushes can be bought at the farm (see Opening times or call 07798 743877 to arrange a convenient time to visit. There is someone on site every day so we can usually arrange a convenient time outside of our opening times.
Most of the varieties we produce are high quality commercial varieties with outstanding yield, flavour and disease resistance characteristics. Some of these varieties are often not available through the mainstream garden centres and nurseries. At Lenctenbury Farm we grow fruit for sale as well as produce the plants for sale and we often use the same varieties in the field as we have available for sale.
Pruning and fruit growing training / consultancy is available to anyone buying a plant from us - or indeed to anyone not buying a plant but interested in how to properly prune and care for fruit bushes. For more details clink on the following link Pruning and fruit growing training

We have blueberry bushes in pots ranging in price from £12 to £40
Many of them are established bushes that have been lifted from the field and potted. These plants will carry good crops straight away.
We will be lifting many more established bushes so if you are interested in well established larger rooted plants contact us to discuss your requirements. We can offer discounted prices for larger orders
Blueberries are easy to grow and look after if you get the two key things right. First you must plant the bush in acidic soil (pH 4.5 - 5.0 is optimum) or in ericaceous compost in a pot.
Secondly you must prune the bush every year. If you get these things right and feed the correct fertiliser during April-June then you can expect fruit every year for between 20 and 40 years. All plant buyers will receive a guide on how to plant, prune and care for your bush.
We have summer fruiting and autumn fruiting varieties, both of which will produce fruit this year.
The bushes we produce are strong 2 and 3 year old bushes.
