Packed with antioxidants and bursting with sweet flavor, blueberry bushes are rewarding to grow and easy to fit into home gardens, containers and the edible landscape. Blueberry plants grow best and produce the most fruit when grown in full sun (six or more hours of direct sunlight daily) and in acidic soil. Gardeners with neutral or alkaline soil often grow blueberry plants in containers. When selecting the best blueberry plant varieties for home gardens, make sure the variety is suitable for your hardiness zone. Some blueberry varieties are ideal for northern climates while others grow best in southern zones. Also, take into account the plant's mature height and spread.
