Recommended Spacing

We recommend spacing these plants 4 - 6' apart to ensure room for growth.

Great berries
I love these berries more than any other variety. They grow well in the mid-atlantic region. They are not too sweet, with the perfect tartness to waken your taste buds. Nice size too. Be sure to cage your berry plants, because rabbits love to chew the limbs off.

I dont have the blues yet!
My baby plants are still that so I cant say too much. They have been in the ground since last Spring (2015) & actually flowered & gave me a handful of berries June of 2015!!! Right now they are full of flowers (May 2016) & some have already began turning into tiny blueberries! Very Exciting! I do hope they will grow tall & wide as advertised. They should eventually be at least 4'H X 4'W. Right now they are maybe a foot or so off the ground.

Small Darrow blueberry plants
They did good last summer growing to 6" high but over winter rabblits ate the shoots to the ground. This year I have built a wire cage around them to protect them and they are growing back again.
I would advise people to buy larger plants, but these were a great deal at such a low price.

Healthy plant not much fruit
After almost a year, we have had one eatable berry. The plant looks great and my hope is that my crop get better. The berry was large and very tasty. I am thinking of purchasing a couple more plants so I can share my berries with a couple other folks.
