Blueberry ‘Northland’ 2 YR

Blueberry ‘Northland’ has been hybridized to adapt to the very northern climates of our country. It has flexible branches which do not break under heavy snow loads and adjust well in the sub-zero environment. Firm fruit with delicious wild berry flavor produces on long and loose clusters. Blueberry ‘Northland’ is also an excellent ornamental bush. A low stature and spreading growth habit make it an attractive landscape plant. Blueberry plants are also great for wildlife! The flowers provide nectar for pollinators, and birds and other wildlife love the fruit.

Blueberries are naturally high in antioxidants! This fast-growing fruit is highly nutritious and has a high vitamin content. Blueberries are excellent in pies and make delicious jams and preserves. Best of all, bake your own blueberry muffins! Blueberries are rapidly increasing in interest due to their reliability and health benefits.

Like all blueberries, it must have moist, acidic soil to flourish. Set plants out as early as possible in the spring. Prune branches back about 1/2 their length at planting time, with no further pruning required for three years. Prune annually after that, during the dormant period.

(This is size 2 YR product and is sold 10 plants per unit.)

Planting/Care Instructions +

Planting Instructions: Prepare the ground well before planting. Blueberries prefer an acid soil. In alkaline soil, add ammonium sulfate for best results. Dig a hole large enough to encompass the roots without bending or circling. Set the plant in place so the crown (part of the plant where the root meets the stem) is about 1-2 inches below the soil surface. When planting, add generous amounts of peat but no fertilizer. Cover with soil to the original soil surface and water thoroughly. Blueberries can also be grown in large pots and containers if compost is used. Prune in winter, cutting out dead or damaged branches. In spring, feed with sulphate of ammonia, sulphate of potash, bonemeal and top-dress with compost.

Pests or Diseases: No serious insect or disease problems. You can protect fruit from birds with netting.
