Hi. I have a blueberry bush in my garden. It has ripened blueberries on it. Are they good to eat at this time of year? If not then when should they be harvested?

When they are dark blue they are ready to eat. Try a couple and see if they have the sweet/tart taste you want. If not wait a couple of days. The trouble I had with mine was they were so good they never made it into the house. :whistle:

Haha. Hope mine taste as good. I just wondered if they might have been affected by the recent cold spell

You need netting. At the end of the growing season, we can usually get them at 10p. Here in RHS flagship gardens, they even caged some of the berries and cherries.
