Why plant Blueray Highbush Blueberry?
Pick your own bushel of blueberries with Blueray Blueberry, a perfect plant to provide you with buckets full of extra large (and extra sweet) berries! Bearing fruit mid-season, you're landscape will become enriched in the smell of fresh blueberries signalling that the light blue berries are ripe for picking! A belly full of berries and plenty more for jam! So plant today, and watch the beautiful pink blossoms turn into sweet edible blueberries for you and the family to enjoy!
So many of the plants we grow for food come from distant places. The Highbush Blueberry is a homegrown American native. It grows in the wild from Maine to Florida, ranging westward to Minnesota and Louisiana. Over the years, plant breeders have improved the size, flavor, and quantity of their berries. Blueray offers mid-season medium-sized berries for your enjoyment. An outlier compared to other blueberries, Blueray has the best winter interest with its toned red stems. This blueberry variety is a decent grower in Missouri.
How to use Blueray Highbush Blueberry in the landscape?
Enjoy the dainty white bell-shaped blooms in spring right before they grow the berries you'll be craving all year. However, Blueray Highbush is self-fertile to ensure that you produce the best blueberry crop and plant other blueberry bushes to cross-pollinate. Growing different varieties will extend your harvest season between early, mid, and late-season plants. Be sure to harvest the blueberries before the birds do! If you are worried that our winged friends will enjoy the harvest before you, place a net over Blueray to preserve the berries.

How To Plant Blueray Highbush Blueberry
Acid soil is key to growing Blueberries successfully. These peat-loving Accents require very low–pH conditions to thrive. If your soil isn’t naturally acidic, you may want to grow Blueray Blueberry in a large container or raised bed. Give it all-day sun if possible and use lots of organic matter—both as a soil amendment and mulch. Water weekly if no rain falls. Even though Blueray is self-pollinating, you may want to plant other blueberry varieties to increase your yearly berry yield. Pruning should be completed in late winter after the second year of being planted.
How To Fertilize
Incorporate Elements Starter Plant food granular form into the soil when planting. If planting in spring or summer, start fertilizing late fall using Elements Starter Plant food granular form on an annual basis each late fall. Continue this for the first three years to get your plant well established.
