Berry Plants - Enjoy their health benefits!

Berry plants or shrubs are gaining popularity due to their health benefits. Most berries are very easy to grow and will do well in most soil types. They do not require much in the way of maintenance other than the occasional pruning to keep them in check. These plants can grow very quickly. Berries differ greatly in different colors and sizes. Birds and insects may be attracted to the fruit as well. Most are nutrient-packed, high in vitamins, and fiber. Native to North America, blueberries are extremely high in antioxidants, which can improve brain health. They are the healthiest when eaten raw - but are also popular ingredients in baking, jams and jellies. Plant blueberries in full sun. Enjoy the berries in the summer and the fall colors of purple, orange and red. Some are self-pollinating, but it's best practice to have several varieties in close proximity. Heritage Red Raspberry is another customer favorite.  Planted in full sun, they will grow to around 4-5 feet tall, and produce fruit two times in a year. The first time around July, which will be light, and the second time in the fall.
