Container blueberries as an “ornamental edible”©

P.R. Fisher
Blueberries are a great candidate for container production by nursery growers. They fit into the “ornamental edibles“ market niche and combine consumer interest in edible gardening, sustainability, and low-care perennials. Blueberry cultivars selected for local conditions can be planted out into the environment as a perennial landscape plant, enjoyed as patio potted plants, and have multi-season interest with spring to summer blooming, fruiting, and foliage, and fall color.
