Blueberry plants take a certain climate and soil acidity level in order to thrive. Growing them in planters for the first few years is a great way to control both climate and ph level of the soil.

Make sure you choose a varietal that will fit within your winter months. All blueberry plants need a cold period, just depends how long. Once you have completed that time, either bring your plant inside to start blooming or let spring do that naturally!

Blueberry plants are pretty hardy so it’s been easy to grow!
