    I got Elixir Blueberry Fertiliser - NPK 12-10-11 + 4 off fleabay, but afterwards saw its cheaper via thier site. Not cheap at 4x price vs the other multi nutrient I had been using but seems to have given them vigour this year and strong green leaves. I had thought this was iron deficiency, ph is already low, but seems may have been nitrogen form issue too, apparantly they like it as nh4
    They are hard work vs currants which grow for fun here

    Bud setting is now well under way for next year. The plants starting to draw down the resources for next year.
