July is National Blueberry Month: Plant up and Enjoy Homegrown Blueberries from Bushel and Berry
Date:7/18/2019

Fresh blueberries are now found just a step away from the back door with the Bushel and Berry Collection of homegrown edible berry bushes.

These ornamental berry shrubs, which took more than 20 years of breeding to develop, bring beauty and healthy, delicious fruit to any garden or on the patio in containers, not out of sight in the back yard where unattractive, old-fashion blueberry bushes traditionally have been planted.

“From foodies to families to first time gardeners, growing blueberries can be easy,” says Layci Gragnani, product manager for the Bushel and Berry Collection. “They add beauty to your patio or landscape, give purpose to the space and allow everyone to have their own home-grown, healthy berry lifestyle.”

Packed with health benefits, these easy to grow and compact patio blueberry shrubs are quickly becoming a staple in every garden.

“Just plant, prune, protect and pick,” Gragnani says. “These are forgiving plants that will reward you with a little TLC with a lot of berries. They are just as beautiful as they are nutritious.”

Here are four reasons to plant some ‘blues’ on the patio during National Blueberry Month:

1. Grow blueberries for health: Blueberries pack a big punch in a small bite. They’re nutritional powerhouses packed with high concentrations of antioxidants that help guard against cancer and heart disease. Just one serving of blueberries serves up almost 25 percent of the recommended daily intake of Vitamin C. As a low-GI fruit, blueberries have a favorable impact on regulating blood sugar in people with type 2 diabetes.

2. Grow blueberries to maximize small spaces: Dwarf blueberry shrubs are the perfect fit for containers on the porch, patio or balcony. Growing blueberries maximizes small spaces and keeps fresh, nutritious fruit nearby. Try Bushel and Berry’s Pink Icing. With breathtaking spring and fall foliage and large, sweet berries mid-summer, this gem makes small spaces shine. Plus, these bushes are self-pollinating, so only one bush is needed to produce fruit.

3. Grow blueberries for style: Bushel and Berry’s blueberry shrubs are multitaskers in the garden. One plant produces beautiful flowers for spring, juicy fruit in summer, breathtaking fall foliage and colorful winter branches.

4. Grow them for the kids – Little hands love digging in the dirt and harvesting their own blueberries. Not only is growing blueberries with kids a fun experience, it’s also rewarding. Let children partner with Mother Nature to learn how to explore and discover. Packed with flavor and heart-healthy benefits, these little dynamos are a childhood favorite.

With vibrant hues of blue and sweet flavor, no summer fruit is better known (or better for you) than the blueberry. These blue wonders play a vital role in health and well-being. Plant a blueberry bush today and get ready to pluck some fresh berries.

“There’s nothing like adding your own, fresh-picked berries to a smoothie, salad or dessert,” says Gragnani. “Plant them this summer to have juicy berries for years to come.”
