Be prepared to wait about 4 years to get fruit from it though, and you don't know what you'll get since they're like apples and don't grow true from seed. Better to buy plants in 1 or 2 gal pots and plant those, or root cuttings from older plants.

Best site I know of for blueberry growing info is from U of Maine

Just buy the 1 gallons during the fall when they go 80% off. It is probably the easiest way to get lots of edible berries fast.

I moved most of mine up to 5 gallon pots.
