Plant cranberries in pots or raised beds, 50cm apart.
They are best in moist well-drained acidic soil (a pH of 4.0 - 5.5 is ideal) or ericaceous compost.
Cranberry plants will do best in full sun, and sheltered from strong winds. They will tolerate a little light shade.
Growing Tips & Pruning Advice
During the first growing season expect your plant to need watering daily. As it establishes this can be reduced, so in later years it will only need a thorough drench once or twice a week during prolonged dry spells in summer.
Cut plants back lightly to keep them compact and bushy.
Mulch in autumn or spring with an ericaceous compost.
Cranberries rely on insect pollination, so plant them in amongst lots of flowers to attract more bees and pollinators.
Flowers will appear in spring, berries will be ready to harvest in late summer to early autumn.
