Blueberries, they’re your friend and eating too many of them certainly will not turn you purple like Willy Wonka’s Violet Beauregarde. They can fill you up though – with much needed dietary fiber to help reduce the risk of heart disease and potentially prevent you from overeating. Better yet, our Willamette Valley has just the right recipe for ideal growing conditions for this powerful perennial berry.
One approach to growing blueberries is to start BIG – why wait years for bodacious berry production? This is not as economical as starting small and waiting, but it pays off so quickly. Lane Forest Products’ Corner Store Nursery boasts some of the largest bushes in town in 7 gallon pots. Plant one of these beauties and you’ll be enjoying blueberries with your cereal each morning.
