    Truly Disappointed.
    I can’t believe they would ship a plant in this condition. This is the second time Ive ordered these, hoping that my last purchase was a fluke; well, it wasnt. The plant is diseased to the point that Im not going to plant it with my other bushes, because I dont want to infect them. Not only that, Ive received plants in a 3 gallon pot that were larger and more established. I wont buy these again. The quality of this bush is absolutely terrible. I think they have a problem with blueberry rust or some other funal disease that meeds to be resolved.

      Not a very large plant, not a lot of roots
      It seems this plant is put into a 5 gal pot only to be able to charge more, marginally bigger than 2 other blue berry plants bought from Home Depot that come in a much smaller pot. It was surprising to see that the blue berry plant only has maybe 4 inches of roots and the rest of the pot is basically just filled with mulch. The picture shows what I mean with the plant near it’s pot. You’re better off with the smaller potted plants at half the price.

        Blueberry Rust
        I purchased two bushes in April, both arrived with severe blueberry rust. These were my first blueberry plants and I didn't realize what it was until after extensive research and a trip to my local nursery. I will never buy these again. Buyer BEWARE.

          I'm buying more!
          Im in Dallas, Tx. I'm a first time grower, have knowledge from Google, but no experience. I bought it end of February, its end of April and I already have fruit. I haven't done anything special to the plant. I've only watered it and it's still in its original pot I received it in. I'm buying more, it's definitely fruit bearing
