Fruitscaping™ with Blueberry Bushes

Step into the world of Fruitscaping™ with our Blueberry Bushes. An absolute joy to grow, these versatile plants offer an array of benefits, from the nutritional to the aesthetical.

Blueberry bushes are hardy, naturally resistant to many pests and diseases, and they thrive in acidic soil conditions. With a pH preference of 4.5 to 5.5, they will flourish when mulched with acidic organic matter such as pine needles or peat moss, ensuring good soil moisture and adding an extra boost to their growth.

The bounty of blueberries they produce are not only rich in antioxidants and packed with sweet-tart flavors, they’re perfect for everything from fresh eating and baking to jam-making and preserving.

Beyond their fruit, Blueberry bushes add a touch of beauty to your garden all year round. In spring, they sprout delicate bell-shaped flowers. Come summer, they sport glossy green leaves. And in fall, they put on a show with stunning, fiery-red foliage.

Their compact growth habit makes them ideal for border plantings or container gardening, making them a smart choice for gardeners with limited space. Integrate these vibrant bushes with other garden gems like fig trees or pomegranate trees for an edible landscape that’s pleasing to the eye.

Young blueberry bushes adapt well to various gardening techniques. Train them into an espalier for a living fence, cluster them for a striking natural hedge, or keep them in containers on your patio.

With Blueberry bushes, the Fruitscaping™ possibilities are as boundless as they are beautiful. From planting and nurturing, to picking and savoring your own homegrown blueberries, the journey promises to be one of delight and abundance.

Shipping Information

Before Your Plants Arrive: You can find many guides on unpacking, planting, & care, on our growing guides page.

The Journey From Our Nursery to Your Door:  We NEVER ship our plants bare root. Your plant will travel in the very container in which it was nurtured. We thoroughly prune and water them before packing, and make sure they’re well wrapped to retain moisture during transit. It’s as though you’ve personally collected them from our nursery!

Choose Your Ship Date: We understand you’ll want to be available when your plant arrives. Our checkout process features a handy calendar that allows you to choose the Monday on which you want your plant to ship. Depending on your location, you’ll likely receive your plant by Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday of that week. Once shipped, UPS will generate a tracking number and send it to the email you provided. You can then follow your plant’s journey and ensure someone is available to unpack it on arrival day.
