Blueberry Bushes and Plants
Berries Unlimited only provides tissue cultured and virus indexed plants for blueberry bushes and plants, and that ensures the health of the plant, our customer's success, and to get the most yield possible. For the best results we have broken them up into Northern blueberry plants and bushes and southern blueberry plants and bushes. Our plants are 2 to 4 + years old ready for planting. Blueberry bushes are comparatively long-lived plants. On the average, they can produce at peak yields for many years. Most bushes will live and bear for more than 50 years, as long as they are properly maintained. Blueberry bushes have a profusion of white/pink blossoms in late spring, leaves which are glossy green, blue-green in summer and outstanding colored foliage in autumn. Besides fruit production, they are beautiful ornamental and are used in a variety of landscapes. Blueberries make great hedges! And Tea made from blueberry leaves (tops picked before bearing) is healthy and delicious! For larger berries and higher yields, it is better to have 2-3 varieties.
There is a lot of confusion about Northern varieties vs Southern varieties. For example, Duke is considered a northern blueberry but the number one blueberry planted in North Carolina is Duke! You can grow some of the harder Southern varieties in the North, zone 5: O'Neal, Sunshine Blue. We allow you to Shop Blueberries by Hardiness Zone to make ordering for Your Zone easier.

We do not sell bare root plants. Please, read all information on our website. It was written for unestablished plants specifucally. please, read all our stickers on the invoices attached to the shipments.Please, do not use cedar or any other acidic mulch or any colored mulch, do not apply any mulch until the plants are rooted in and established! Keep 2 ft circle mulch free for a while. We recommend Pine mulch. Oak is possible too but for mature plants only. All our 1 gallon plants are at least 3 years old. Our 1-year-old -1.5-year-old tissue cultured plants are ready to go into 1 gal pots ( not a larger size pot! Do not use any common soil for repotting them! Use any professional soil for acid loving plants) to be replanted in the ground in fall : it is the easiest way to get larger plants through the growing season 2023 and through summer heat. IF you are not sure that you are able to weed them when grass grows very fast or to water them when it is so very hot, please follow this advice!! This way You will have very large plants in the fall and can safely plant them into the ground after the hot season finishes and you have nice temperatures and enough rain water! Do not let blueberries planted in the pots spend the next coming winter in those pots!!! They will get frozen and You will lose them. DO Not mulch the plant base (1 ft for 1 gal pots) after replanting into the ground in the fall or in spring or mulch it like 1/3 of an inch! Mulch in winter or in early spring when the plant gets established and looks healthy and growing.
Please, weed all the grass around at least 4 '.
Do not rely on a dripping system while your plants are not established very well, especially if it is a hot period. Water by hand, please!
