Great Buy
Nice, big, healthy plants! They wintered over very well. I'm anxious for Spring, to see how they bloom and produce! I would buy them again, I would recommend to a friend. Glad I supported a Missouri business that have been/will be around for years to come!

Doing great
I have had the plant for a year and is planted in a large pot since we don't have acidic soil here in Utah. The plant is doing great and had lots of blossoms and it appears that we will have a good crop of blueberries this year.

Gorgeous!
We purchased 1 Northblue and 1 Northcountry blueberry last spring. They are both in pots that would hold nearly 5 liquid gallons with amended soil for added acidity. The Northblue has grown the best and looks the best. The bush filled with flowers before the beginning of May! There are handfuls now that are almost ripe, and a few I already harvested and enjoyed fresh. I would highly recommend it and have purchased another this year.
(For those it may help in considering purchasing, we live in Oklahoma - the blueberries have held up well to our crazy cold-hot-cold-hot temperatures and severe weather. Survived ice storm and the winds and hail from the tornado season.)

Blueberries
My blueberry bushes don't seem to be doing very well. Not sure if it is me, or not.
