The Berry Garden
The blueberries I bought were both. "jersey" varieties. These also got a bag of peat moss.
They came in these nice Eco pots that were made from recycled "post-consumer waste paper" (humm?), "A carbon-neutral material, with no eco-impact and no carbon footprint", "Stock is made with 100% renewable wind energy", and "100% biodegradable". Just can't get better than that now can you. You were supposed to just bury the whole pot but I took it off the blueberries as you could tell that they had soil up past where they should have had it on the stem.
I also got some bare root strawberries. I got 10 everbearing "Ozark Beauty" and 10 junebearing "Honeoye". Well, I was supposed to get 10 of the junebearing ones but the box was short two of them. Oh well, I probably had more than I need anyway.
So now they are all planted along with a blueberry bush that I hadn't killed last year that I had in the lower garden. It may have room for one more blueberry bush, lol, maybe I'll stop back by the store tomorrow. ...
