Jersey Blueberry Plants
Reviewed By: Nick Jones (Delaware, Ohio)
I bought six plants in the fall of 2010. I kept four and gave two to my neighbor. All six are coming along well after their second winter. The Blueberry mix helped as did coffee grounds. Nice red foliage is staring to emerge.

Jersey growth
Reviewed By: Richard Macbeth (Abingdon, Va)
I have two Jersey's to go along with 3 other verities (14 plants in all) I grow them in 1/2 wine barrels that way I can control the soil and water and it supports the berries very much. I also use the Gurneys blueberry food twice a year and pine straw them in the winter. I did not let them blossom out the first year. this will be the 2nd season for all my blueberries and they are doing great this year. The key is to have many different types to help each of them out.

In love with Jersey
Reviewed By: Roberta Cegarra (Danville, NH)
I started with two blueberry bushes to see how it went. I have an Earliblue and a Jersey. My Jersey is doing phenomenal and my Earliblue is right there too. Excellent fruit and lots of it! I'm hooked...bought 9 more bushes of various varieties!
