When I took over my plot last year I dug up the overgrown fruit bed and binned most of the fruit bushes.I kept back a Gooseberry and two Blueberries.Re planted the Gooseberry and potted up the Blueberries and surprise,surprise one plant produced the bog-standard blue berries but the other pink berries!!Very sweet and research suggests that it may be the variety"Pink Lemonade".Definite keepers.

You were in lucky Snooky. Most people I know don't have much luck with blueberries. Perhaps they've benefited from a change of soil around the roots and a different environment.
