Very healthy plant and lot of berries
I ordered one 1-gallon size sweetheart blueberry last year; I live in New Jersey and we had a real long and cold winter, two large size blueberry bushes I ordered from other nursery died, however this sweetheart blueberry survived, growing very well, produced a lot of flowers followed by berry fruits! best of all, it does not attract insects or animals, very healthy with large beautiful leaves and is maintenance free. I will order a few more sweetheart blueberries from FGT

I recently purchased one of these from FGT and was quite disappointed in the way it was shipped. I had read reviews on other plants on how great things were packaged, so perhaps I just had an isolated experience. My Sweetheart Blueberry arrived with the additional bag of potting mix I purchased thrown on top of it inside of the tree box. It is a small plant, and only had two skinny branches growing off of it so far, and the weight of the bag mix had snapped off one of the main branches. I planted the remaining part of the bush, and so far it seems to be doing ok. It has a couple of bits of new growth showing, although I think it will be sometime before I am able to review how the berries produce and taste. For the price I think I was just expecting a fuller bush and better handling of the plant when packaged

My first time........
I got six plants spring 2014 They were small,and looked a bit sick. Followed the planting instructions and this spring they tripled in size and got about 20 blueberries each plant and the berries were the size of cherries and were sweet. I am looking forward to the fall to see how they turn out.

Overpriced for what I got!
I was quite disappointed in the 1 gallon size plant I got. I got a gallon of dirt and a 6" stick! I am hoping it will do something.

I have purchased other products from this sight and have been quite happy but not so much with this.

Planting & Care



It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Sweetheart Blueberry


Sweetheart Blueberry Planting Diretions

The Blueberry is a deciduous shrub. The leaves are spirally arranged, narrow, and start out red-bronze in the spring only to develop into a dark-green. The flowers of the Blueberry are white, and bell-shaped. The fruit is a berry, which is dark blue to black, and has a thin wax coating.

Seasonal information: Blueberries are grown as an ornamental plant for its fall colors, typically bright orange or red. It is also a highly regarded "super food", containing beneficial vitamins and nutrients.

Location: When selecting a site to plant your Blueberry bush, make sure the site has full sun and drains well. The plant grows best in moist soil, not in soggy soil. Blueberry plants require acidic, well-draining soil. When planted in soils with a pH higher than 5.5, blueberry plants do not absorb nutrients adequately and become more susceptible to disease. Blueberry plants contract moisture-related diseases when exposed to humid conditions or standing water.

Planting instructions: Dig a hole with the shovel that is about twice the size of the root ball of the bush. Make sure the hole is the same depth as the container it comes in. When planting more than one blueberry bush, dig holes that are at least five feet apart in rows that are 10 feet apart. Amend the soil from the hole with peat moss. Make sure to thoroughly mix the peat moss with the soil from the hole. Place the Blueberry bush in the hole. Cover the roots with soil-peat moss mix.

Watering: Your blueberry bushes will need to be watered regularly to make certain that the root system becomes well established. The soil surrounding your tree should be moist, but never saturated. Light green leaves can be a sign of over watering, while drooping leaves can be a sign of both over or under watering.

Fertilization: You do not need to fertilize the Blueberry bush at the time of planting. Fertilize the Blueberry bush twice a year, once in the spring and once after harvest.

Weed Control: Hand-pull weeds near the blueberry shrubs. You can damage the shallow root system with garden tools.

Pests and Disease: Blueberries grow best in acidic soil and are subject to few pests and diseases. The Blueberries are not self-fertile, so two compatible varieties should be planted next to each other to maintain growth and fruiting. If maintained with mulching, the berries can handle temperatures as low as 10 degrees Fahrenheit. Blueberries can mature to the height of three to six feet with a width of up to three feet. The plant has few insect or disease problems; however, birds and squirrels are prone to eating them.

Pruning: Blueberries require only minimal pruning. Lower limbs can be thinned out to keep the fruit from touching the soil, and excessively vigorous upright shoots can be thinned out several feet from the ground to keep the center of the bush open, and to keep the bearing surface within reach. Spindly, weak, or dead branches should be thinned out annually during the dormant season.

Pollination: Blueberries are not self-fertile and must have two or more varieties to pollinate each other. Honeybees are inefficient pollinators, and carpenter bees frequently cut the corollas to rob nectar without pollinating the flowers. Blueberries do best when pollinated by buzz pollination by bees, such as the native southeastern blueberry bee.

if I order now, when can I expect it to bear, and would this time of year be ok?
Brenda P on Jun 25, 2014
Best Answer: These plants produce fruit in the early Spring. Blueberries mature and are harvested mid summer. Existing fruit may fall off of the plant in transit, so you would most likely have fruit next summer. If temperatures aren't scorching hot you can plant Sweetheart Blueberry bushes now, but if temperatures are consistently in the 90's it will be better to wait until the early Fall when it cools off.

Will trees and shrubs look like the photographs?


Most trees and plants on the website are pictured in their mature form. Depending on the product and growth rate, mature development can take years for your plant to resemble the photos. Picture the last time you took a walk in the woods. The young trees were not miniature bonsai versions of mature trees. Instead they were naturally thin and lanky. Young trees are programmed to race toward the light, before the competing vegetation crowds them out. Once established at 10 feet or more, they start developing a wide canopy and shedding lower limbs.


Trimming & Pruning

Most Trees and Shrubs are Pruned Before Shipping... at No Cost to You!


Pruning makes plants appear to be less-full than the ones you may have seen at your local big box garden center. A retailer's goal is to have plants look their best while sitting in the store. Our goal is to have them look the best after you plant them.

Pruned trees and shrubs not only travel better, but become established much quicker. So rather than supporting extra foliage, they put their energy into sending out deep roots. Once that happens, your plants become hardier and quickly explode with new top growth. Above the ground, pruning helps your plants develop a more attractive form.
