Compact plant habit is perfect for edible landscaping or use in large pots. Fall foliage and winter wood are a golden yellow, followed by bright-white blooms in the spring. Perfect sky blue berries amass in large clusters, easy to pick and are perfect for baking. Northern highbush blueberries require 800 to1000 chill hours to set fruit.
Plant blueberry plants in a sunny to partially shaded area, in a well-drained, very acidic soil, with a pH of 4.2-5.2. Plant at least two different varieties for cross pollination. Set blueberry plants 4-8 feet apart (3 feet apart for hedges).
As fruit ripens, cover blueberry plants with netting to deter birds. Pick fruit promptly to discourage insects.
