Blueberry Bushes
« on: May 03, 2009, 20:00 »
I've just been on Ebay checking prices for Blueberry bushes and they tend to be a bit on the pricey side.... I do know where there are a vast amount of wile bushes.
Is it possible to take cuttings from an existing bush, or do they need to be started from seed?

I'd give cuttings a try, softwood are always easiest to strike IMHO, but you could go for semi ripe cutting later in the year about June -July time.
Use hormone rooting powder if you can and if you can supply some bottom heat even better.
Good Luck.  :)

Hi,  If you still like the idea of buying some plants as well you could try Homebase - our local branch had small plants in their grow-your-own section for 1.99 (smaller plants in pots but in a cardboard "sleeve") however if you went to the outdoor section they are in bigger pots but around the 5 mark.  I bought 2 of the smaller plants and they are doing fine.
