Most blueberry plants will produce a better crop if two or more varieties are planted. Also, put some peat moss or something to bring the soil pH down to around 4. I ordered blueberry plants from Raintree Nursery, one of my favorite mail order nurseries, this year. I also have many mature plants. Two or three of the plants ordered this year are blooming and will have fruit. So it really depends upon the size of the new plant as to how long it takes to fruit. I think that with blueberry plants, I've almost always gotten a few berries by the second year. I have several plants growing in large containers and also have about a dozen plants growing in the ground. To me blueberry plants are one of the most carefee, easy to grow fruiting plants. Mine have almost no disease, are bothered by almost no pests, and even the squirrels and birds only take a small part of the harvest. One thing that I really like about blueberries is that by carefully selecting the right varieties, a person can have fruit from late spring all the way into the fall.
Eclectic gardening style, drawing from 45 years of interest and experience. Mostly plant in raised beds and containers primarily using intensive gardening techniques.
