PYO begins at Wimborne’s Trehane Nursery on 22nd July and every year people travel miles to get their pick of the crop.
“We have a full three acres dedicated to PYO this summer so hopefully we’ll have enough for everyone,” said Jeremy Trehane. “Of course, when the fruit ripens does depend on the weather so we always advise people to check with us first if travelling any distance.
Eight varieties of blueberry will be available this year, ranging in flavour from the supersweet Berkeley to the sophisticated Herbert and slightly perfumed Coville – and there’s nothing to beat that freshly picked taste.”
Check availability on the special blueberry hotlines,

PYO opens on 22nd July and the picking season usually lasts for five weeks. During the season the nursery opens every day from 10 – 4pm.Trehane Nursery is in Stapehill Road, between Wimborne and Ferndown, next door to Knoll Gardens.
