The ever-growing popularity of Blueberry shrubs in the garden
is no passing fad. Savvy gardeners have discovered that they’re easy to
grow, attractive in the landscape and teaming with delicious plump
berries. With plenty of varieties for both cold and warmer climates,
you can enjoy growing your own anti-oxidant-rich fruit just about
anywhere. Then in the fall, they put on a show of dazzling color. The
new Bountiful Blue® is a fantastic
choice if you want a delightful hybrid of an eye-catching ornamental
with a long season of prolific fruiting. Plant a hedge of these
Blueberry shrubs, spaced about four feet apart, and you’ll have a
bumper crop all summer followed by a wall of fiery fall color.
Blueberries are pretty low maintenance -- just a light pruning once a
year, after the season’s harvest, and the shrubs will maintain a tidy
appearance. Most are pest and disease resistant, and they don’t have
thorns, so they are children and pet-friendly.
