In 2018 I ordered a variety of various blueberry plants. They all took really well during first year and this spring they are looking awesome, so many blossoms (we did remove some, the first year we removed all blossoms) and so much growth. We now are going to make an asparagus patch. Figured we should order from Nourse since the blueberries worked out so well.Valerie
Planted 6 varieties of blueberry plants, all from Nourse. We have to stay on top of the pH, but they have done very well.NOTE THAT WE FOLLOWED THEIR GUIDELINES...(people who whine but didn't listen to the pros are just throwing their money away).gardening granny
Chandler really surprised us by being incredibly prolific and delicious! We ordered 3 more Chandler (as well as other varieties) as we are planning to sell commercially, since the "experiment" we began 3 years ago has done so well.
my order came as advertised and plants are doing well right now. we have had a lot of rain and I hope that does not hurt the young plants. if these do well, I will probably order some more.james s
Chandler takes a couple of years to really get going, but it is worth the wait. The berry size can be huge, and the flavor is great. Although it is claimed that berries mature over 4 to 6 weeks, my experience is that most of the crop is ready in the first 2 weeks of that period. This year I had a problem with fruit drop prior to ripening, which I believe was due to insufficient watering. Make sure your plant gets enough water when in the fruiting stage. Light mulching is a good idea.Doug H
HAVING A PROBLEM w. CHANDLER: EVERY YEAR THE LARGE BERRIES GROW, BUT NEVER RIPEN; THEY STAY HARD AND LIGHT-COLORED AND THEN DROP OFF. IS THERE A HARVESTING TECHNIQUE I AM MISSING?JOHN
