The Q&A Archives: No Cranberries

Question: Ihave had a cranberry bush in for 3 or 4 years---it looks great but does not produce any berries---I have it in a damp spot --what do I have to do to obtain berries

Answer: If your bush is flowering but not producing berries either soil is not wet enough or the soil's pH is too high. The growing medium should have a low PH, 4.5 to 5.5. Partial shade is OK but for good fruit production, full sun is best. They will begin to produce fruit in the third year and will continue producing for many years. Hope this helps
