    Stapehill Road, Hampreston, Wimborne, Dorset, BH21 7ND. Phone: 01202-873490. Email: Click here for Trehanes contact page. Directions: Click here for directions to Trehane Nursery. Opening Hours: We are currently open Monday to Friday, 8.30am to 4.30pm. Blueberries usually are available starting in mid July, then for several weeks. For the first time we will have blueberries available under polytunnels for P.Y.O. right from the beginning of the season - so don't let a bit of rain put you off coming. WARNING! Last year huge demand meant that on two occasions during the season we had to close for a couple of days to let the fruit ripen up. So if you are coming any distance we strongly advise phoning in advance (01202 873490) to check that there is plenty of ripe fruit available. Our PYO Plantation is on the same site as the Camellia Nursery. Planted in 1965 it was one of the first UK blueberry plantings. The bushes are grown entirely naturally with no chemical fertilisers, herbicides or pesticides. We do not even have irrigation on the PYO rows which means the bushes have to send out roots searching for water and nutrients. This leads to intense flavoured fruit - rated by a leading supermarket as the finest tasting blueberries they stock all year.
