Blueberries – All you need to know

June’s Harvest of the Month featured item is BLUEBERRIES!

GROW. HARVEST. EAT.

GROW
When you’re ready to plant your blueberries, select a sunny location with well-drained soil that is weed-free and well-worked. It’s best to grow blueberries in an area where water is readily available so you can keep their roots moist throughout the growing season. Raised beds or patio containers are good options for areas where the soil is not ideal. Learn more HERE.

Many Blueberry growers sell at our local Northwest Tennessee Farmers Markets.
