Vaccinium macrocarpon, the Cranberry, is a pretty creeping evergreen with tiny leaves which turn dark red-bronze in autumn and winter and pink flowers in summer, followed by the large red berries from which the traditional sauce and health-giving and delicious drink are made. The berries are ready to pick when they begin to soften in autumn.

The plant grows up to 15cm (6in) high, with an indefinite spread. Plant 30cm (12in) apart in cool, boggy or permanently moist peaty or sandy, acid soil, in sun. Alternatively, plant in a container in ericaceous compost, keeping it moist at all times. Feed with an acid feed.
