My Blueberry Hill


You know by now how much I love blueberries as my fruit of choice for busy weekenders like us.


But did you know that many mail order nurseries ship plants that can be two or three years old?


Yet it takes some plants 4 to 6 years before the plants are mature enough to flower.That's why a neighbor of mine was dissapointed when he didn't get his blueberry bush to thrive right away even though it got a good 5 hours of sunlight a day.


Highbush blueberries need company to bear fruit too. Even after your bush starts blooming, it won't start fruiting in earnest until you plant a differentvariety, one that blooms at about the same time, within bee-flying distance.


Intersting huh?


These varieties bear flowers in more or less overlapping order, from earliest tolatest:

* "Bluetta"

* "Earliblue"

* "Northland"

* "Patriot"

* "Blueray"

* "Ivanhoe"

* "Bluecrop"

* "Berkeley"

* "Jersey"

* "Herbert"

* "Corville"


So check for how mature your plants are from mail-order nurseries before ordering and plant these varieties in groups of at least two which will assure growth!
