Blueberry Bushes for Warm Climates
Blueberry bushes are the surprise addition to your edible landscape Edible landscaping is the hot garden topic. What does that mean for you? Anything from cranking up the design in your kitchen garden, to tearing out your front lawn and replacing it with great-looking edible plants. Two of the cardinal rules of edible gardening (whether you're planning a Peter-Rabbit-style vegetable patch or an eye-popping display in the front yard): 1) Grow what you like to eat 2) Grow produce that costs a lot to buy at the farmers' market or grocery store We're guessing that near the top of your list will be -- blueberries! Choose from the Southern Highbush blueberry varieties, which are happy in warm areas. They're self-pollinating but you'll get even more fruit if you plant different varieties together.
