Blue Pearl Farms has a limited number of three-year-old heritage varieties of
organically tended rabbiteye blueberry plants for sale in 3 gallon pots. The
plants are field-dug and ready to be
planted and can fruit this year. These varieties require cross-pollination, at least six hours
of sunlight, and some space between the plants (4-5 feet) so they don't
grow into each other. Contact us at email@example.com
or the farm line (843-887-3554) for more information.
It's easy to schedule a farm tour or an event for your group or family or a special workshop for your group of five or more. For details, contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call us on the farm line at 843-887-3554.
