Sale: $4.95

A versatile blueberry bush that makes a lovely ornamental plant... as well as producing pounds of delicious, healthy Toro blueberries. 

Toro Blueberry bushes are known for being heavy producers... you get buckets of berries every year! 

Even after an extremely cold winter, your Toros will produce tons of sweet berries in mid-July. 

Fantastic as a border or privacy hedge the Toro boasts delicate white to hot pink flowers in the spring and fiery red foliage in the fall. 

It's even self fertile! It is not necessary to provide a pollinator for the Toro. However, planting another variety of blueberry alongside the Toro will increase berry production. 

These berries are huge! Toro Blueberries are much larger and juicier than typical blueberries you find from the store. 

Plant in rows for the best pollination! Groups of three or five yield the biggest crops of berries! 

And the health benefits! Full of antioxidants, which help reduce the signs of aging. 

These berries are so sweet, it doesn't seem like you're eating healthy... but you are! 

Perfect for northern climates.

It's Easy to Plant your Toro Blueberry

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.

They made it right!
Very disappointed with plants that were sent. Tiny, NOT 2 year old stock! Customer Service was not helpful, I had to ask for her supervisor. She was very apologetic, I sent photos of what I had received and she sent me all new nice big plants from a different Nursery. I love these new plants and I am thankful that they made it right for me. When you pay good money and expensive shipping, you don't want to be disappointed. I will update this review next year as plants mature. I am in growing zone 2

The plant came bigger than I expected, and in very good condition. The packaging was almost full proof- it was very wel protected, the soil still quite moist, and there were no broken branches whatsoever. It's grown a bit more since planting, though I haven't seen any blueberries yet. I don't think I'll get any this season, but that's ok.

I ordered the Toro blueberry bushes on a recommendation from my sister who says she loves them! THe arrived in a timely manner and in good condition! I planted them right away and they are growing slowly. There have been no flowers or blueberries this season, but that is not too surprising! I can't wait until they start blooming next year!

I planted this toro blueberry last fall. It shed all its leaves during the winter. It's not coming along fast. I think it will survive. There is a few leaves on the branches. It looks strong and hope next year I will get some fruits. Its about 3ft tall.

Will my Trees 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.

Most Fruiting Plants 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.
