I have a single blueberry plant. It was a present and I believe it was bought from the Aldi supermarket chain.
Everything I read about blueberries talks about bushes -but this one seems more like a climber and I don't know if it should be pruned or let to run. Are there blueberry plants that are climbers/trailers?
I'd be very grateful for any help and advice. 2 photos are attached . Many thanks.

On plant Vaccinium Corymbosum

Hi Davidd that isn't a blueberry - either someone put the wrong label in the pot or your blueberry died and it is a weed.

Blueberries do not twine up canes they are quite low bushes with small leaves.

Ha! I bought a Blue Berry once but it grew & grew and turned out to be a Cherry Tree and not edible one as it only has one cherry per flower LOL Mine came from Aldi too, will be interesting to see what it turns out to be, hope it will be something nice & not a weed. :o))))

Oh! But I thought it had two stalks with a cherry on each, I have one at the bottom of the garden that has a single cherry and Yuck! So Bitter. :o))

This is Kiwi - Jenny plant, the kiwi fruit which is brown on the outside and green on the inside. It would take upto 2 years to fruit !!!
