I've always loved blueberries whether cooked into pancakes or muffins, mixed with Greek yogurt for breakfast, or just eating them by the handful. Lots of antioxidants, too. So last year I decided it was time to plant some blueberries of my own. And not just any blueberries - I wanted big tasty blueberries. So my search led me to a variety called Chandler.
Supposedly these bushes will produce berries the size of quarters - just what I'm looking for!
When I got these last spring they were dormant stalks about 12" high. I dug dawn about 2 feet to load good soil around the plants. They survived the winter and are looking healthy.
And there are quite a few blossoms although I don't really expect to get much of anything until the 3rd year. Patience is required if you want giant blueberries :)
Next time I'll give a raspberry report and also an update on the raised vegetable bed - fencing is up!
