Blueray Blueberry Bush
The Blueray Blueberry Bush is a light blue berry. They can grow to be 4 to 6 feet in height. The plant spreads 3 to 4 feet. Each bush can produce up to 20 pounds of blueberries. The leaves of the plant turn a scarlet color in the fall. This is also a self-pollinating plant. The berries have a sweeter taste to them than other berries.The prime time to harvest the Blueray Blueberry is in July, and the harvest can go on for weeks to come. The recommended hardy planting zones are 5-8.The plant enjoys full sun. This bush can be planted as either a bare root plant or in a pot. It will need to be in an area where the soil is well drained and very acidic. To get the highest yield of berries each year, it is recommended to plant at least two different varieties that will bloom at the same time since they were self-pollinating. When doing so, ensure that the plants are about 4-8 feet apart from each other. During the growing season, it is also important to keep them watered well. They will need about one to inches of water a week during their growing season, but do not oversaturate the soil. Bushes that are newly planted should not be fertilized until it has leafed out. It is also recommended to remove the flowers the first year. This will help strengthen the bush. Mulch can be used after the ground freezes, typically in fall. This will help to prevent root damage to the bush.
