During the months of May & June, Beacon Woods Farm & Flowers has young blueberry plants for sale. They are $15-18 per bush (depending on variety).
You can pre-order your plants anytime during the year for spring planting. We will be selling Bluecrop, Northland, Spartan and Patriot varieties. Some of our blueberry plants are propagated right here on the farm and others are obtained from our favorite blueberry commercial nursery.
You may purchase your plants right on the farm or meet us at the Freight House Farmers Market
Blueberries, although sometimes a bit finicky to grow, can be a wonderful addition to anyone's landscape. In the spring they bloom with white or blushed white tiny little bluebells. During late June & early July they produce abundant sweet delicious berries. And then come autumn, they abound with blazing red foliage.
Most blueberry bushes of the high bush variety, eventually grow to four feet tall (or more) and about as wide. They can produce almost 50 years if they are well maintained with pH, fertilizer and pruning. A mature bush will provide between 10-20 pounds of berries/bush, depending on the variety and seasonal conditions. For example, in 2014, we had almost no fruit due to the unseasonably c-c-c-cold winter and a late frost which killed our blooming bells.
