MANTS Video Pt 3: Barbara Katz on Blueberries

Barbara Katz, London Landscapes LLC, shared her thoughts on blueberry shrubs that she saw at the recent MANTS 2011. I have three small blueberry plants myself and just planted them this fall. I know I'll be fighting the birds over what small amount of fruit they produce for the first few years, but I'm hoping in future years to get a decent enough yield that the birds an I can share.


We make u-shaped hoops out of rebar and irrigation tubing, then put bird netting over the whole thing -- well-secured around the whole perimeter -- otherwise the catbirds and robins would clean out our entire blueberry crop every year. It takes more effort but it's totally worth it for the berries!
