(Vaccinium spp.) Growing a blueberry plant is like having a fresh blueberry stand in your own backyard. Our blueberry plants will produce abundant crops of juicy, delicious, antioxidant-rich berries that you can enjoy in a number of ways. They can be eaten fresh, baked into pies, or add them to your cereal or oatmeal. Blueberries need an acid soil to thrive and 50% peat added to the planting hole is recommended as well as annual applications of sulfur if your soil has a ph over 6.
