blueberry northland

Blueberry Northland is especially noted for its cold hardiness (zones 3 – 7) making it a good fruiting plant for beds and containers. This variety has a compact, rounded dense shape only growing to about 4 feet tall with a wider spread. The berries are sweet and ripen in early summer.

Height: 4′ – 6′

Width: 4′ – 5′

Exposure: Full sun is best.

Watering and soil: Moist, well drained acidic soil is essential. To lower your soil PH to 4 and 5 use regular sulfur applications working the granules into the soil. Ideally, do this three months before new planting.

Fertilizer: Use a well balanced fertilizer or slow release formula.

Pruning: Start pruning after the third year in late winter or very early spring.
