Grow your own harvest of blueberries! Enjoy showy spring flowers and large crops of dime-sized, sweet and flavorful berries. Known as a super fruit, blueberries are highly regarded for their high concentration of antioxidants and abundant health benefits.

Varieties:

  • Pink Lemonade (Zones 4-9)
  • Misty + Sunshine Blue (Zones 5-10)
  • Legacy (Zones 5-8)
  • Emerald + Sharpblue (Zones 7-10)
  • Biloxi (Zones 8-10)

Care Instructions

Select a sunny, sheltered spot for your blueberry. While blueberries are tolerant of shade, better crops are obtained in the sun. At the same time, they should not be exposed to harsh, drying winds. Use acidic soil (ideally between 4.0-5.0) that holds moisture, but also drains well and does not stay wet. Water your blueberry plant 1-2” of water per week.
