Product Overview

Blueberry shrubs are becoming one of the most popular choices for east-to-grow edible fruit for the home gardener. The Woodard Blueberry bush will reach a mature size of 6 ft. x 6 ft. In spring small white and pink bell-shaped blooms will appear, then fruit will develop in late spring to mid-summer. Blueberry bushes thrive when planted in acidic soil that is rich with organic material and in part shade to full sun environment. When planting blueberry bushes you will want to plant more than one variety to ensure cross pollination which will result in quality fruit. We recommend climax, tifblue, premier, or becky blue as your cross pollinators.
  • Plant in well drained acidic soil
  • Full sun to part shade
  • Produces edible berries
  • Water often until established
  • Easy to grow/maintain
  • Cross pollinator required for quality fruit

Questions & Answers

when do I fertilize blueberry shrub? When do I prune?

Asked by Sally November 29, 2018

Answer

It is recommended to fertilize blueberry shrubs in early spring before the leaves begin to flush out, this will allow the nutrients to be at the ready when the plant is putting on new growth. We would suggest that you use a fertilizer blend that is blended for Acid loving plants. Acid is needed in the soil to help the blueberry plants to absorb iron and magnesium. TRIMMING - The most prolific/best producing will be the canes that are 2-4 years old, so when pruning cutting out the older canes and then keeping the younger canes to let them mature is a good idea. Pruning be done while plants are dormant in winter

can these blueberries be grown in a big pot?
