Description

Highbush Blueberry is typically found in moist bogs, swamps, and low areas. It grows best in rich, acidic soil having good drainage, due to its shallow roots. Blueberries self-fertilize, but cross pollination can produce larger berries. Its best to pinch off flowers for the first two years, making it easier for the plant to establish itself. Berries can be eaten alone or made into pies, jams, jellies and more.
