Buy Gaultheria procumbens Big Berry ('Gaubi') (PBR) partridge berry / checkerberry: Excellent for containers

  • Position: partial shade
  • Soil: acid to neutral, peaty, moist soil
  • Rate of growth: average to fast-growing
  • Flowering period: May and June
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    The partridge berry or checkerberry is an excellent choice for containers (when potted up using ericaceous compost), but it also makes a handsome ground-covering plant for a shadier spot. It forms a carpet of thick glossy evergreen foliage, which is covered in early summer with white to pale pink flowers. These are followed by aromatic deep red berries, which also put on a good show in autumn.

  • Garden care: When planting, add plenty of well-rotted leaf mould or shredded bark to the planting hole. After flowering light prune or cut back those shoots that spoil the symmetry of the plant. Remove suckers to help restrict growth.

Good all year


Planted 2 in the garden and 2 in pots. Lovely to have by the front door. The potted ones get lots of positive comments. New leaves look great, flowers give interest and the berries are the crowning glory. Very happy with Gaultheria.

Hi, will this plant (Gaultheria procumbens 'Big Berry' partridge berry / checkerberry) arrive with berries and how long will it keep them for? I'd like to have them in containers outside and for the berries to still be there at Christmas. Thank you.


This plant will have the berries now, but sorry we cannot guarantee they will still be in berry at Christmas.
