Our faithful, helpful readers have been leaving feedback on facebook and in the comments that the Giant Blueberry company has received some negative feedback in online forums. So I want to add caution to the Giant Blueberry deal and give you some alternatives for ordering blueberries. I searched amazon and found the best rated sellers for blueberries. Here are the results.

The Giant Blueberry Plant deal is back!
This deal was wildly popular last year! Now you can grow your own blueberries from the comfort of your home!
Plus Shipping and Handling of $6.95 on the first two and $4.95 if you get the bonus plant.
Each plant can produce up to 4 pints of blueberries a day and 16,000 blueberries over the life of the plant. Wow! Now if only this offer came with a little chef to make me some scrumptious muffins from said blueberry plants, I’d be in heaven!
Tips for Growing Blueberries from HGTV
- Pots give you a lot more control over the soil. Acidity is critical, pH of about 5.5 is recommended.
- Blueberries like moisture because they’re shallow-rooted, so the bigger the pot, the bigger the drink of water.
- Planting blueberries in the ground is different. The best way to plant a blueberry in the ground is to dig a hole about 2-1/2 feet wide and 1 foot deep. Use a 5.5 pH acidic blend of soil.
- A healthy blueberry plant will fruit for 15 to 20 years before slowing down.
- For the first three years, you won’t need to prune young plants. After that, cutting the plant back once a year will increase vigor.
