Blueberry Plants

Blueberry Patch- We’ve got the Blues!

Blueberries are one of our specialties. Thanks largely to both Florida’s and Georgia’s excellent breeding programs, it is now possible for the homeowner to enjoy luscious bush-ripened blueberries from the garden throughout the summer months. This is also an excellent crop for people who have small acreage and want to grow a cash crop, as blueberries are not expensive to establish. Blueberries plants are easily maintained and the fruit is in high demand as a fresh market fruit.

POLLINATION
Yes, most blueberries need pollination. The old school of thought was to break the varieties into groups that pollinated each other best. Through time it’s been determined that it’s better to have as many varieties as possible to ensure a long bloom season and maximum chances for cross-pollination. Just remember that Rabbiteyes only pollinate Rabbiteyes and Southern Highbush only pollinate Southern Highbush. So mix them up well and try to have at least three varieties in the patch.

CHILL HOURS
The best method for choosing blueberry varieties is to choose ones that are within about 100 chill hours of the averages for your area, tabulated by the USDA or IFAS. You want your plants to bloom together and to avoid late season frosts that can knock fruit and flowers off your bushes. If you buy blueberry plants developed for your planting zone, you’ll have less trouble and get the results you’re looking for.
