The heights we list are after we prune your tree.
Many Nurseries advertise heights before they prune, then cut off several feet before shipping. While this reduces their shipping cost, it gives their customer a shorter tree than they bargained for. The tree will likely need an extra year to grow back and to produce fruit.
We prune your tree throughout its life. This process takes us longer, but gives you more branches and quicker production.
Plus, we don't include the pot or root length in our measurements. This gives you an extra 1-2 ft. in tree size.
Our larger trees are usually one to two years older than our smaller ones and will typically give you results the first full season.
Get your new plants off to the right start by using DIEHARD™ Transplant.
This soil amendment contains 16 strains of mycorrhizal fungi, biostimulants, beneficial bacteria and Horta-Sorb® water management gel.
Simply sprinkle the product into the planting hole adjacent to the root ball when planting.

Now you can easily grow the tastiest blueberries by the bushel – right in your own yard!
Growing your blueberries requires NO mixing chemicals... NO spraying for bugs... and NO ingesting dangerous insecticides – Rabbiteye blueberry bushes are naturally pest resistant.
Plant these bushes now and you could have buckets of berries throughout the summer.
Save hundreds of dollars each year, for decades.
Plant an attractive blueberry hedge and you'll have plenty extra to share with friends and neighbors.
Blueberries are the nutritional "Super Food". They have a higher concentration of anti-aging antioxidants than almost any other food. This is one of the easiest plants you can grow... easily adapts to even the worst soils. Plus, the well developed root systems will have them quickly thriving in your yard.
f you have never tasted fresh blueberries, ripened on the branch... then you will be amazed at how sweet and flavorful berries can be. Now here's your secret weapon that will have your bushes producing more berries, bigger berries and tastier berries than anyone else's.
When you order more than one bush, you'll automatically receive separate strains that will cross-pollinate each other. It's like marrying your bushes into outside families. Our competitors don't do this, and it makes a huge difference.
You can't make a mistake, because we send you the best combination of bushes.
We recommend ordering 3 or more bushes for best results. When planting as a hedge, space every 3 feet. You don't even have to work for them. Once established, these bushes thrive on neglect! They produce fruit quickly... you should start enjoying your berries the first season. Plus, your bushes produce berries over a period as long as 3 months, instead of coming in all at once like many varieties.
So you have more time to enjoy them.
Under ideal conditions mature Rabbiteye blueberry bush can provide a hefty 15 pounds of berries each season! You will have plenty to share and plenty to freeze.
These berries are firm, not mushy, so they store with great results.
We suggest you order early because these large bushes will sell out.
Your Blueberry bushes will thrive in an area that receives full to partial sunlight. The more sunlight that your bushes get, the more fruit they'll produce as long as they are in a well drained area of your yard, that doesn't collect any standing water. Acidic soil with a pH balance ranging from 4.09 to 5.5 will be best for your Blueberry Bushes. Use a pH meter to measure the acidity of your soil and add sulfur or Peat Moss to increase your soil's acidity level. Fertilize your Blueberry Bushes early every Spring, as your Bushes emerge from winter dormancy and flower. Midsummer after you harvest your Blueberries fertilize your bushes again. Use an organic fertilizer for an acid loving shrub. Your Blueberries won't be ready to be picked until their stems appear blue, not red or green. Once your Blueberries are ripe they will be a dusty dark blue color.
Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Rabbiteye Blueberry.
First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.
Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.
Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.
Next, separate the roots of your Rabbiteye Blueberry gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.
The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.
Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.
To make it just right, use a level.
As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.
Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.
Water your Rabbiteye Blueberry again after the transplant is complete.
To help retain some of that moisture, it's recommended that you place mulch around each plant to a depth of 2"-3" up to but not touching the trunk. Organic mulches such as wood chips also help to better soil structure as they decompose.
