Buy cranberry 'Pilgrim' cranberry Pilgrim / Vaccinium macrocarpon 'Pilgrim': An arching shrub with tart tasting berries

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: prefers moist, but freely draining acidic soil but will grow in sandy or normal soil
  • Rate of growth: fast-growing
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    This low-growing, evergreen cranberry has small, leathery leaves on lax stems that have an arching habit. Its attractive shape can be best admired when planted in a container so it can cascade over the sides of the pot. The tiny pinkish-red flowers appear in spring and are followed by tart dark red berries that are packed with nutrients and vitamins.

  • Garden care: Prepare the ground well before planting by digging in lots of composted organic matter. Prune in winter, cutting out dead or damaged branches. In spring, feed with sulphate of ammonia, sulphate of potash and bonemeal and top-dress with ericaceous compost.
