VINES & BERRIES
BLUEBERRIES - Blueberries are the easiest to grow, most productive fruit plants that we know of.  A three-year plant can easily produce a gallon of delicious berries; a five-year -old plant can produce five gallons of berries, some as large as quarters in clusters over a foot long.  Neither the berries nor plants are bothered by insects or disease.  The plants, once set out seem to thrive on neglect.

The most important things to remember about starting blueberries is to plant more than one variety for cross-pollination.  Cross-pollination is necessary for fruit set.  We recommend that you pick off all the berries their first season as soon as formed, so that the groth will build up the plant.  Plant the roots in a hole the size of a 5 gallon can with a mixture of 1/2 top soil and 1/2 peat moss, water well but do not fertilize the first year.  After the first year add 1 oz. of azalea fertilizer, doubling the dosage each year thereafter.  Never use lime around blueberry plants.
Southland - During the winter Southland bushes rarely lose all their leaves.  The plants produce very large quantities of huge berries, many of the large tasty berries found on the interior of the plant.  The berries usually ripen in late June and are a favorite with most home gardeners.  This one may also be grown over a wide range of states.  Item #2104
Bluebelle - These blueberries ripen mid-season.  Lenghen your harvest season.  Select one or more of these varieties.  With early, mid-season and late varieties, you should enjoy fresh blueberries for six weeks.  Item #2102
Delite - This recently developed variety grows tall, being very vigorous, but producing few leaves.  The berries are semi-acid with a rich delicious flavor.  The ripe berries are pinkish blue and last well on the plant or in refrigeration.  Delite are one of the latest ripening.  Item #2103
Climax - These berries all ripen at once, hence the name, in late May to a very sweet, rich flavor.  The berries are medium in size and when frozen lose none of their freshness or aroma.  It is one of the earliest ripening varieties. Item #2100
Brightblue - These berries occasionally are as large as quarters.  They are easily picked from the clusters when they begin ripening in the last of May and continue to ripen over a long period of time.  The bushes are vigorous, never failing to produce large quantities of large berries. Item #2101
