Let's grow the The Whortleberry outdoors; they can bear very harsh minimum temperatures, even when many degrees below zero. During the winter season we advise protecting the roots of the youngest species with straw or dry leaves; when planting young plants we can ensure them to a stake, which maintains them erect.Locate this plant in a partially shaded place, where it is exposed to solar rays during the coolest hours of the day.
These plants are shrubs. Whortleberry Is an evergreen; during autumn iIt assumes a greenbluepurple colouring; the adult specimens are medium in size and reach 40 cm high. The Whortleberry has a panel-like development, therefore it tends to widen very much.
The fruit plants are fertilized using manure or other organic fertilizers; Towards the end of the winter letís plant the fertilizer at the foot of the plant.
Water when the ground is dry; in case of prolonged droughts water very often, otherwise every 2-3 weeks can be enough using 1-2 buckets of water ; avoid water stagnations and excessive watering. From April to October letís remember to clean our orchard periodically from infesting plants, which otherwise use a part of the water and of the fertilizer that we feed our plants.
They favour a substratum which stays slightly humid, not too drained.
