Half-high blueberries in containers or not??

Lori615(5b (GR, MI))February 21, 2013

I have ordered the Northland package of blueberries from Berries Unlimited.com - it consists of two each Chippewa, NorthBlue and Polaris. I emailed the company asking for suggestion on pot size for on my deck, and her response was that these northern half-highs should absolutely not be put in containers, as it will be torture on the plants. She's strongly recommending I change my order to the dwarf pkg, which consists of two each Northsky, Northcountry, Top Hat and one Brunswick. I would really rather have the larger half-highs than the dwarfs. I have 22-inch containers and will be able to winter them in my garage. Is she right, that I shouldn't grow the half-highs in containers? I've found a lot of info online that leads me to believe I won't have a problem!
