I've got a Earliblue and a bluecrop in 2 separate pots measuring 20.5 inches wide by 10 inches deep. Pots have drainage holes and about 1 inch of gravel in the bottom to assist drainage. Will this size and configuration be adequate for the life of the plants or will I need bigger pots at some point?

BEST ANSWER: when I planted these in the ground I gave them 36" diameter 18" deep hole for each plant. In a container that small they will quickly become root bound, maybe even this first year. I would consider doubling the container at the end of the year, or planting them in the ground

Earliblue Blueberry
My plants arrived in excellent condition and they are growing very vigorously in my garden. They also did very well in Michigan harsh winters. I will expect a small crop in about two years. I would recommend this variety if you like an early crop. I will rate this variety five stars due to vigorous growth, large berries, disease resistance, and it will bear an early crop.
