Blueberry, Elliot 2.25 Gallon
Elliot yields abundant crops of big and flavorful blueberries . Its rounded, spreading bush habit makes it a great landscape plant. They grow 4 to 6 feet tall with green foliage and a long harvest period. Elliot is a self pollinator! In many cases, you may still want to plant pollinating partners to increase the size of your crops, but with self-pollinating varieties doing so is optional. You’ll get fruit with only one plant!

- Dig holes twice as wide and twice as deep as the roots of the plant.

- Set the bush in the hole with the root ball just below the surface and its roots spread out. Pack the hole tightly with soil.
