Full Sun, Partial Sun

Everyone loves blueberries, and the Premier Blueberry is the top-choice variety for warmer zones, where many other varieties will fail. It grows into a compact bush, just 6 to 8 feet tall, and it carries a big harvest of large berries, which ripen in May and June. It grows best in full sun or partial shade, in well-drained soil, and growing your own blueberries is not difficult. These healthy berries taste best when fully ripened on the plant, and the only way to enjoy that incredible flavor is to grow your own. For muffins, pies, and of course pancakes too, nothing beats homegrown berries. There is never any waste, because you simply pop the extra berries straight into the freezer, to enjoy months later.

  • Superb heavy-yielding bush, with large berries
  • Best variety for warmer states
  • Tolerates higher pH levels than other varieties
  • Will grow in sheltered parts of zone 6
  • Compact size is ideal for growing in pots

The Premier Blueberry should be grown in acid soil, with a pH between 4.0 and 6.0. This variety is more tolerant of higher pH than others, so it is the best choice if your soil is 6.0 to 6.5. If you don’t have suitable soil, simply grow your plants in pots or boxes, using potting soil for acid-loving plants. Blueberry bushes usually don’t suffer from pests or diseases, and they only need a light pruning in spring, so this an easy plant to grow, if you have the right growing conditions.
