Cultivation of cranberries is similar to that of the blueberry. They prefer a moist soil of high organic content, so a generous amount of moss peat, forked into the top 9" of soil is normally required. If moisture is maintained, they are a very rewarding crop to grow, producing relatively heavy yields of plump, juicy fruits that make an exceptionally well flavoured cranberry sauce. They excel in a sunny position. No pruning is required except to trim off any untidy stems which should be done in early spring. They are low, spreading, evergreen shrubs.
