Needs regular watering - water weekly or more often in extreme heat.

Soil:

Prefers acidic, moist, well-drained soil (we recommend using an azalea potting mix) that is rich in organic matter.

Maintenance:

Responds well to pruning. Plant will have some discolouration on its older leaves in cooler
months (a form of rust). This is common with blueberries and doesn't mean they're dying.
