Wanted to share a pic of my 5 gallon
blueberry garden. These were tiny liners
which I received last July.

Altogether I have 170 plants at various stages.
I planted 100 new liners last month with 10
new varieties that I didn't have before. The ones
in the pic were planted last July and yes they
are loaded with fruit. Many recommend to remove
all buds the first year as the branches are too brittle
to support fruit load. Well I was a newbie and wanted
to taste so I let them bare.

Just planted 2 bluberries in containers on my balcony. How can I attract bees (for cross pollination).?

Looks like a Sunshine Blue blueberry. If it is, they are a dwarf variety. How do
they taste ? Mine are not ripe yet.

They taste good - though a couple made me squint. We just nibble, so the trick is to touch them and see if they fall in your hand. Then they are great.
