Excerpt from page 1
Between the two of us we have about 40 years experience in growing highbush blueberries in Rhode Island. We have read and published a lot of scientific papers about this plant. We have also killed a few dozen plants trying to improve their growth and production but we believe that we have learned a few things in the process and would like to share them with you.
Would you like to grow blueberries in your own yard and enjoy fresh fruit for 8 to 10 weeks during the summer? You can if you follow a few basic guidelines about location soil and culture. We will tell you how to do it all in this bulletin.
You know that there are a lot of different kinds of blueberries besides the highbush blueberry- dryland evergreen mountain rabbiteye half-high and low bush. We are going to talk about the highbush blueberry only- the kind most common to commercial growers and the home gardener.
Highbush blueberry plants are easy to grow relatively pest-free and need little maintenance; they also fit very easily into most landscape plans. The plant has delicate white bell-shaped flowers in the spring delicious fruit in the summer bright crimson leaves in the fall and red or yellow-colored branches in the winter.
