Fruitscaping with Blackberries & Raspberries
Summer and berriesâ€”searching the roadside for patches of tasty wild berries for jams and fresh eating. Every country family has done it, and the wild patches are quickly disappearing to urban sprawl. So why not grow your own? Homegrown blackberries are well worth the effort, and can be grown by any gardener. Smaller growers than fruit trees, they fit easily into the tightest of yards, and can be easily tucked into your landscape or just added to the vegetable garden. Â Many new cultivars make it easy to have that same wild flavor in a patch in your backyard (and some varieties are thorn-less).Â Most of the varieties youâ€™ll buy from us, are bred for their size, production, and excellent fresh flavor. We choose to offer plants that do especially well in the hot humid south. In the edible landscape they make great hedges and as backdrops for the flower border. Even a city gardener can have a few berry plants by planting them in pots!
- Starter Fertilizer:Â Â Plant with Espoma Organic Bio-toneÂ® Starter Plus.Â This will increase root mass and help avoid transplant loss in difficult planting conditions.
- Fertilizer to Maintain:Â Â All of our Berry Bushes (Besides Blueberries) work great with Espoma Organic Citrus-tone Fertilizer.
Weâ€™re so sorryâ€¦Â but due to agricultural restrictions we cannot ship any plants outside of the United States, or to the states ofÂ California, Hawaii and Alaska. Also,Â citrus trees cannot be shipped outside of the state of Florida.
Unpacking Your Plants Guide:Â Â Prior to receiving our plants, please click this link to read our Unpacking Your Plants GuideÂ to get to know the steps to keeping your plant healthy after receiving it.
We do NOT ship bare root: Â Our trees are shipped in the same exact containers they are grown in, for the most healthy transition. The plants are watered well before they are packed and wrapped in a shipping bag to ensure they stay moist during transit.Â It’s as if you came and picked them up right from our nursery yourself!
Why do we not offer free shipping? At Just Fruits, we price all of our plants online exactly as we do in the nursery. Therefore, the shipping cost is simply what it costs for us to get your order from the nursery to you. Many competitors may increase the plants’ prices in order to hide shipping costs… we do not do that. We want our customers to see exactly what the plant costs are, separate from what the shipping costs are. That way if you decided to come visit the nursery to pick up your plants instead, you would know how much you save in shipping.
Weather Watching:Â Â We now ship all year round! However, we do watch for extreme weather. If there is extremely cold or hot weather expected around your shipment date and on your path of shipment, we will contact you and notify you that we plan to hold the shipment for the next possible shipping date with better conditions. If you ask us to still ship it, through the conditions, we will not be responsible for any damage caused to the plant & UPS will not refund any claims. We love our plants, and do not want to see them die, so we would rather wait until itâ€™s the right time to ship it, than risk losing a plant in transit.
