Can this be pruned to be dwarf size?
Nora O on Mar 16, 2018
BEST ANSWER: It's really quite simple to keep a blueberry as small as you'd like it. Prune it back while it's still dormant for best results.
how soon will a gallon plant bear fruit?
john m on Jan 26, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I got my plants in the fall 2015. The following spring they were still very small plants but they, to my surprise, made some beautiful berries. The plants are some bigger now so I'm hoping that this coming spring I'll have even more. Note: Our soil is not acidic so I have them in a raised bed and mulch with lots of pine needles from my in-laws pine tree.
My misty blueberry plant is 2 yrs old. & few berries. What can I add to produce more fruit?
Jackie L on Jul 18, 2017
BEST ANSWER: If you didn't pinch off the first year's flowers, that would be Reason #1. We might also recommend a soil pH test to see if the soil is acidic enough. Blueberries like a pH of between 4.5 to 5.0. If you need to lower the pH, this will do the trick: :// You may also be missing phosphorus or micronutrients in your soil, in which case you need to supplement those. If you would like to learn more about it, we have a blueberry fertilizer that is specially formulated just for blueberries and gives them everything they need to do really well: // These two items are sold together and cost less when bought as a pair. That page is here: //
Could you please tell me the Latin name of this blueberry?
Adrienne L on Apr 10, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Sure, it's Vaccinium corymbosum.

Misty Blueberry Plants
I have tried growing Blueberry plants in Southern CA. for nine years with no success . I saw the Stark bros web sight and decided to give it one last try. What a great company !
First, the plants arrived in excellent condition. All had healthy green leaves and excellent roots. Second, I followed their planting recommendations regarding the use of mulch, fertilizer, etc. None of the other growers ever mentioned its use.
Finally, none of the other plants lasted a Stark Bros not only made it over a year, I have just started picking my first "homegrown" blueberries.
They taste nothing like store bought berries ! They are sweeter and juicier than any blueberry I have ever tasted.
I'm never shopping anywhere else for my garden needs.
Stark Bros is my first and only supplier for my garden needs.

Good Growth and production - with acidic soil
The Misty Blueberry has done well in Durham NC over the last two and half years. The first year saw very little growth but with the addition of organic sulfur as an acidifier made a big difference with the plant now over 3 feet tall and good production.

Takes a licking
Jury is still out, a came in perfect shape no complaints...however I planted it in an unsuitable place (too much shade and where the snow gets very deep and can stay until late April) my fault, so it just hung on. I transplanted it and an O'Neil after an early snow melt in March, before we got more snow, into a sunny corner. It is beginning to bud out It looks much happier as does the O'Neil. So as far as Stark's is concerned choice of first location not so much. The Misty Blueberry is tough.

Misty Blueberry
Another one that has done well in West Central Florida's zone 9A. I did pinch the flowers in it's first bloom and there are new canes appearing and overall growth has been pretty robust. I have it growing in a #25 nursery pot/

The bushes arrived in great condition. Planted right away in the fall. The winter was mild in South Texas and the bushes are already blooming. They are healthy and thriving.

keep away from muscovy ducks
I live in zone 10b in ft Lauderdale ... and despite my concerns for the warm climate these plants grew well, flourished even.. until one day I left them out on the dock in my backyard. The ducks often congregate there.. and their primary diet is tender leafs and stems.. they ate every leaf off the plants!

but I must say after I elevated them and kept them in a shadier spot for two weeks they started to return and are doing well.

If anyone is worried about warm climate concerns just make sure you have a place that gets afternoon shade and you'll be fine and use deer mesh to keep away these ducks if you live in sfl and live near water

Misty Blueberry
I bought this with another type blueberry plant and it has TAKEN OFF! - while the other is much slower. I have It in a pot, but if it keeps growing at this rate i'll have to think about what to do with it. We had some blueberry bushes in the past that were tall and beautiful, productive and sweet and this is moving in that direction - I can't wait until it starts to bear!!! It also has some beautiful foliage / nice to look at. So far exceedingly pleased!

Beautiful bushes
These plants are looking great! They are loaded with good looking blueberries that will soon be ripe and ready to pick. They have been healthy and growing since I planted them in my pots. I definitely would recommend them to others.

Misty Blueberry in Texas
I love blueberries, and have tried 6 or more varieties in a somewhat protected yard of unfortunately heavy clay soil. With often very hot summers under bright sun with temperatures sometimes ranging between 100 and 112 for one or two weeks in a stretch. And it rarely rains during the hot times. I water my plants carefully, but unfortunately it has not proven adequate, though I do have apricot, peach, and nectarine trees that do great. My misty blueberry is alive for the 3d year, but not bearing enough to be useful. I do not blame this plant/variety; many plants do not do well in the Dallas/Fort Worth area.
