Produces Two Large Crops Each Year!
Why Sweetheart Blueberry Bushes?
With the Sweetheart Blueberry Bush, you get huge harvests each year under most conditions. A large bounty of fist-sized blueberry clusters arrives in late May or June and the second one in August, yielding around 15 pounds of blueberries per year.
The big, sweet berries are its main attraction. The Sweetheart Bush will produce medium to large sweet blueberries. The perfect hybrid of Southern and Northern Highbush varieties, the fruit is amazingly juicy and plump yet firm. If you like to bake blueberry muffins and make blueberry pancakes, these blueberries are ideal. The texture plus the rich flavor make them a favorite for cooking, but they're also a delicious snack picked right off the bush.

Sweetheart Blueberry Bush Pollination
Sweetheart Blueberry Bushs are self-fertile. You will get fruit with only one plant. However, adding an additional Sweetheart Blueberry Bush will drastically increase the size of your crop.
Planting & Care
1. Planting: When selecting a site to plant your Blueberry Bush, make sure the site has full sun (6 to 8 hours per day) and drains well. The plant grows best in moist soil, not in soggy soil.
When you're ready to plant, 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 bush, dig holes that are at least five feet apart in rows that are 10 feet apart. Place the Blueberry Bush in the hole. Cover the roots with a soil-peat moss mix.
2.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. Generally, we recommend watering about once weekly or twice in times of extreme heat. If you're not sure when to water, check the surrounding soil about 2 inches down for dryness.
3. Fertilizing: 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.
4. 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.
5. Pollination: Blueberries are self-fertile. However, you can plant three or more of the same variety to achieve maximum fruiting.
