Blueberries, Red Currents and Raspberries at Royston House BB
Anxious Berry Flowers ready to burst forward and produce the delicious fruit and Jellies our Guests enjoy at Royston House B&B. After 6 years of establishment the fruits of our labour should really pay off this summer and the summer B&B Guests will share the fresh bounty.
Our Spring has been dryer than usual for Vancouver Island and this has contributed to the new plant growth. April weather has been very sunny and warm so the plants have done really well as you can see by all the green growth and the very abundant pink flowers on the Blueberries.
Our pruning was done in January so the plants were able to put all their energy into new growth and new flower buds.
Mason Bees and Bumble Bees are extremely active now at Royston House so we should get good pollination for fruit.
Looking at these plants in the mid day sun, I can almost taste this wonderful fruit and some of Nancy’s delicious jellies.
