Sweet, Wild Blueberries, Grown at Home!
Why Lowbush Blueberries?
You're probably familiar with the berries you get from this blueberry bush's larger cousin, the Highbush Blueberry. But if you haven't tried the Lowbush Blueberry, you're missing out!
These smaller berries are sweet, with a more intense blueberry flavor. They'll make the perfect addition to pancakes, smoothies, pies and more - and they're excellent for snacking fresh off the bush, too!
Often found in the wild in northern climates like Maine and New Brunswick, the Lowbush Blueberry is perfect for at-home growing in zones 3-7! They're extremely cold-hardy and prefer acidic, well-drained soil.
- Produces deliciously sweet blueberries
Low-lying and compact, ideal as a space-filler or groundcover in garden beds
Prefers acidic, well-draining soil
- Hardy and disease resistant

Lowbush Blueberry Pollination
Lowbush Blueberrys are self-fertile. You will get fruit with only one plant. However, adding an additional Lowbush Blueberry will drastically increase the size of your crop.
Planting & Care
Location: When selecting a site to plant your Lowbush Blueberry, make sure the site has full sun and drains well. 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 can contract moisture-related diseases when exposed to humid conditions or standing water.
Planting instructions: Dig a hole about twice the size of the root ball of your Lowbush Blueberry, and as deep as the container it comes in. Amend the soil with peat moss or sawdust. Place the Blueberry bush in the hole. Cover the roots with soil-peat moss mix.
Watering: Your Lowbush Blueberries will need to be watered regularly during the growing season. The soil surrounding your plant should be moist but never saturated. Light green leaves can be a sign of overwatering, while drooping leaves can be a sign of over- or under-watering.
Fertilization: Fertilize the Blueberry bush twice a year, once in the spring and once after harvest, using a fertilizer for acid-loving plants.
Pruning: Prune your Lowbush Blueberry every other year to promote greater berry production, and remove any less productive or damaged branches.

Customer Reviews & Photos
It arrived very healthy. I planted it according to directions in full sun and in well draining soil so we will see how it does after the winter.
My first Lowbush Blueberry plants
I have quite an extensive group of different varieties of Highbush Blueberries, but have wanted to try some Lowbush. When I saw FastGrowingTrees.com was having a sale, I checked it out and decided to buy a couple Lowbush Blueberries and see how they'd do after a year of growth. I planted them carefully where they'd get ample sunshine and started thinking about the first blueberries I'd get from them next spring and summer. Much to my surprise, I got berries from them this year, within two weeks of planting them. The berries were smaller than I'm used to but, oh so good! Now, if I can just keep my grandson from eating them all!
Beautiful Blue berry bushes even arrived with some berries already on them
Right now they are great. Beautiful little bushes, I am just hoping I don't **** these. I have studied all I can on Blue berries.
Lowbush Blueberry Plants
I sure was skeptical of ordering plants online, but after reading so many reviews of people having good experiences I decided to pull the trigger.. The plants were delayed over the weekend, but arrived in excellent condition. The information on the web site was helpful in making sure I purchased the right blueberry plants for my area and location of where I wanted to plant. The blueberry plants took off once planted.. The information about the blueberry plants liking acidic soil was also useful in making sure I had fertilizer for acid liking plants. Overall, my wife and I have blackberry plants, cherry trees and shade trees we will order from FastGrowingTrees.
Great little berry trees!
