Blueberries are beautiful ornamentals for your home. Shiny bay-like leaves and lily of the valley type flowers rival any small shrub in beauty. Plants thrive with no spray and produce year after year. In our area of Virginia the following varieties ripen from May to November. Their fall color is vivid red, holding their leaves into December. These varieties are varied in ripening time, size of bush and flavor. This is the best list compiled for excellent all around choices. Blueberries are self-fertile. Never add stable manure or lime to your blueberry soil. Add generous amounts of peat moss to soil before planting.

Cranberries Dogwoods
Most of us think of cranberry plants being only for bogs but, like lingonberries and wintergreen, they will grow in high organic upland soils. Cranberries do best with generous amounts of peat moss amended in the soil. They thrive in "poor" soil but it needs to be high in organic matter. Plants are ground cover at 11" tall. Space about 1' apart.

Plants are bushier and more productive if five year old wood is pruned out. Will grow in any type soil and in shade! Choose two different varieties for fruit set, except Nova.
