Recommended Spacing

We recommend spacing these plants 5 - 6' apart to ensure room for growth.

I came from NJ and there always were a good blueberry
Patricia A C on Mar 6, 2017
I LOVE blueberries and eat so many of them. However, organic blueberries are so expensive. By investing in the bushes I will save a lot of money over the live of the bushes. By growing my own I know my blueberries will be organic. I also love the way the bushes look in the landscape in all seasons, so they increase the value of my home. They are an easy care nutritious perennial addition to my yard.

Can I plant a jersey and a darrow next to each other and what is the minimal spacing I need for just 1 plant of each?
Corinn C on May 13, 2018
BEST ANSWER: You can absolutely plant these next to one another - they should be spaced 5-6' apart.
will the one gallon plant bloom this year? thank you.
anne b on May 2, 2020
BEST ANSWER: The one gallon blueberry plants did not bloom the first year. The stress of the transplanting kept them from blooming the first year. Although they did get quite established the first year and grew nicely, lots of leaves and stem growth, no flowers or fruit production happened.

They should bloom the second year, although mine did not because rabbits got to them and ate most of the years growth. This is the third summer and they are now flowering.

Great Blueberry Variety
I have tried many varieties of blueberries over the years trying to extend the season by planting early, mid and late varieties. Perhaps the best producer is the Jersey variety. For some reason this one is heartier than some of the others and really seems to thrive when others die off after a season or two. the berries are medium sized and taste great. Just the right balance of sweet and tart.

Strong grower
I bought the Jersey Blueberry last year to support the production of other varieties I'm growing. It is already as tall and sturdy as other varieties I've had longer. The berries are ripe now, in July, so perhaps there will be a longer season. The berries are pleasant and plentiful. .

Great Product
Planted these bushes last year, and they are doing really well. They were shipped as strong plants, and I gave them a few weeks in a small cold frame while I waited for ideal planting weather. That gave them a good head start, and I expect to have some fruit from them this year. I would recommend them, and I expect to buy more in the future.

Jersey blueberry
I am not that happy with the growth of my plant. It is over a year old and hasn't really grown more than 6 inches since planting. Water and fertilizer had been applied when needed.

they're trying
All I can say is that they survived a milder than normal Montana winter
and are leafed out. It remains to be seen how well they will bear. The
first year they didn't do much. Could be a soil pH issue, though we added
product to lower it. We live in timber country with lots of huckleberries so
we hope the blueberries like it here too!
