Cranberry – Vaccinium Macrocarpon (Potted)


Out of stock

A reliable grower with good frost and disease resistance
This is the most widely grown variety of cranberry as it is well known for its reliability and resistance to frost and diseases. It’s a self-fertile variety producing beautiful deep red fruits with a lovely tangy flavour.

Number of plants: 1 (potted)

Variety: Vaccinium Macrocarpon

Planting & growing tips: Dig a good sized hole and pop your plant in just below ground level and cover with soil. Can be grown in pots or large containers initially, however you will need to increase the pot size as the plant begins to establish itself. You will receive a growing guide with your plant.

Ready to harvest: Aug-Mid Sept

In the kitchen: Cranberries come into their own around Christmas but are good for much more than accompanying the turkey. Their sour flavour lends itself well to both sweet and savoury dishes, as well as in smoothies, juices and cocktails.

Can be delivered from: Late April to July. This plant will arrive in a 9cm pot.

When we deliver
We deliver these plants from late November until May, depending upon the season. It is a little tricky for us to give a specific date as the fruit bushes and canes are dispatched when they are dormant as this is the best time for them to travel and be planted, so we are a little dependant on the weather.

Do I need to sign for them?
All our plant orders are dispatched with an overnight courier* to mainland UK and do not need to be signed for when they are delivered, but will be left somewhere safe. When placing your order, please let us know where you would like the plants left if you are not in when the courier delivers.

We will keep you posted
You will receive an email approximately a week before your order is dispatched and another on the day your plants are packed and leave us so you know to expect and prepare for their arrival.
