Prepare to be amazed how gorgeous Blueberry bushes are! They have luminous, bell-shaped white flowers in spring, which are so fun to watch as they develop into your harvest.
Blueberries are...blue, right? Not necessarily, as the beautiful Pink Popcorn Blueberry will attest.
Go ahead and gather your crop to enjoy in your bowl of oatmeal, or prepare them as preserves. After the berries are picked, look forward to a long season of outstanding fall color.
That's exactly why homeowners are busy ripping out their foundation plantings and installing an Edible Landscape. What's prettier than a low hedge of Cabernet Splash Blueberry?
These Rabbiteye Blueberries put up equally well with the humidity of the South and the heat of Southern California. Try favorites like early-ripening Climax.
Blueberries need acidic soil, so grow them in containers to keep the pH level below 6.0. Use pH-neutral rainwater to keep the levels right for flowering and fruiting.
Raspberries are deciduous perennial fruit bushes that have biennial canes. The first year's canes are called "Primocane" and the second year's canes are "Floricanes".
Most of the over 200 Raspberries bear a single, large crop of tasty fruit in summertime. But we also offer fall-bearing (or ever-bearing) selections that provide two smaller crops a year.
You will also relish all the color options! Raspberries come in a spectrum of bold colors from black to orange and yellow...and all the shades of red you can imagine.
Summer-bearing varieties are also called "Floricanes". This is because they fruit on second-year canes.
Soon after harvest, cut the old fruiting canes down to the ground and put them in your yard waste. Leave this year's new "Primocanes" standing over winter to fruit next year.
Everbearing Raspberries produce summer fruit on the top third of the primocanes. Next year, the bottom half of the floricanes will bear fruit in fall.
After the harvest is done, trim the portions of the canes that have borne fruit. Floricanes should be cut and removed at ground level after fall harvest.
Trellis structures help your plants be more productive. Use either a two-wire trellis and tie each cane to it; or corral them in a productive hedgerow with a four-wire trellis.
You can also tip-prune young primocanes in early spring for a more compact, erect plant. Please study the information on each cultivar for additional details.
Some prefer to grow erect bush-type varieties like Triple Crown Thornless Blackberry. The flavor grows sweeter as the berries ripen...wait to pick until they slip easily from the blissfully thorn-free branches.
Hardy Darrow Blackberry offers a fantastically rich "wild blackberry" flavor with a twist. Wild blackberries are tiny, but Darrow produces large, plump berries to eat fresh and use in the kitchen.
Grow Bushel and Berry® Baby Cakes® Blackberry in containers to lively up your balcony or patio! Go ahead and make them a feature in a large outdoor pot, and watch as their berries develop from celadon green, to red, to burgundy then finally...super dark black.
Blackberries produce fruit on floricanes, or second year canes. Prune these canes out at ground level after they are finished fruiting, and discard.
Live in a cold climate, or have alkaline soil...try a Siberian native that thrives no matter what the pH of your soil is. Grow a hedge of healthy, hardy Honeyberries (or Haskap) for long berries that taste like blueberries.
Wolfberries come from Asia, but you may know them as generous Goji berries. They are a bushy vine that provides loads of incredible superfruit each year.
Dry them, blend them into smoothies, or use as a pretty, peppery topping on veggie pizza! Goji berries are blessed with a bounty of minerals, vitamins and antioxidants like zeaxanthin for immune support and eye health.
If you are a foodie, you already crave the freshest possible ingredients. What could be more epicurean than harvesting your own Gooseberries for a hand-crafted spread on homemade bread?
Fruit and berry bushes are hardy, easy to cultivate, resistant to disease, and quick to yield. They typically need full sun, with at least six hours of direct sunlight a day.
Well-drained soil and good air circulation will keep your fruit bushes healthy. Pull your fruit bushes away from the side of your house...it's time to give these hard-working plants a place in prime time!
Always bundle away your edible plants yard waste in fall...and do not compost it. This is good hygiene and helps stop the spread of diseases.
Consistent water is important to support a bumper crop. Mulch to a depth of three inches, but don't let it rest against the stems.
Protect the fruits from birds with netting and flash tape. Don't let them get your hard-won crop from your fruiting plants!
We'll end with a helpful hint. Fruit bushes are excellent gift plants for bakers and health fanatics!
