Hello! I used to be on this forum a bit as Mithril Maid but lost all my info when my laptop got fried...now on another computer and still looking for all my sites.....
Anyway....my dressage trainer is giving me three blueberry bushes that are growing on her property. They have a massive deer population in her area and are never able to harvest the berries before the deer get them all.
So it's late January in the foothills of North Carolina. Can I move these trees now or should I wait a bit? I don't yet have a spot for them as I am still looking for info on the best place to put them.
I had hoped to be able to put them along the edge of my garden but it is in the open and I read they like to have some shelter so now I'm not sure.
The plants are about 3-4 tall and I would think maybe 5-6 years old minimum. They aren't very bushy or anything. They haven't really been tended too at all, just mowed around.
Any advice at all is deeply appreciated! I'm eager to expand my gardening skills and my list of home grown produce!
