New 3-in-1 Blueberry
by Charlie Nardozzi
Blueberries are one of the easiest fruits to grow. The bushes are small and attractive, and given the right soil conditions they can yield a pail full of delicious berries. If you have room for only one bush or are considering growing one in a container, try the new Jacques 3-in-1 blueberry.
Jacques 3-in-1 blueberry has early, mid- and late-season varieties grafted onto one plant. This allows you to extend the blueberry harvest season for up to 12 weeks. This 2- to 3-foot-tall and wide bush grows well in large containers or in the garden, and it's hardy in USDA zones 5 to 8. For best growth, keep the plant well watered and amend the soil with an acidifying agent such as sulfur.
