The advantages to growing your berry plants are many. For example, you get to take pride in your work and enjoy the fruits of your labor. They taste so much better when you have grown them yourself.
You can grow many different berry plants like blueberry, raspberry, strawberry. You can buy plants like these at any nursery online or in person.
Growing your plant from seeds is more challenging as you have to deal with weeds, funguses, drought, and pests. That is still a problem with mature plants, but mature plants are a little more hearty to these problems.
The best option you have is to get these plants from an online nursery. They will be able to ship them right to your door. Some may even offer free shipping. It even saves you time on travel and gas. It gets annoying to drive to a store, and then you find out the plants you want are out of stock. Getting these plants from an online nursery will prevent that. They will even have a vast amount of information on the growth and care of your berry plants.
Yet another option would be to order them from a tree farm.
Tree farms have horticulturalist on staff to help you decide which berry plants would be best for you and your yard. They may even have a staff that will help you install your berry plants. They will supply you with information and resources to help your berry plants stay healthy and produce high yields of berries.
All of these options may be great for you. Or maybe none of them will work for you, but no matter what, the best thing you can do is research where you buy plants from. Please read up on the online nurseries’ information and what extra information they have on the plants you want to grow. Lastly, call the tree farm you want to work with and ask to speak with the horticulturalist and talk to them about the berry plants you want to grow. Thank you for your time, and good luck and have fun growing your berry plants.
Tammy Sons at Tn Nursery says it’s super easy to transplant berry plants, and they live. They only require 30-40% shade and require well-drained soil.
