I ordered Northsky (one of the ultra-hardy Minnesota dwarf blueberries) from Indiana Berry this week. Eight bucks ($8) for the bush and ten dollars ($10) for bareroot shipping. It arrived today nicely packaged-- at least 1.5 feet tall with a good root system (though the roots were a bit on the dry side). I soaked it and potted it immediately in a chopped peat and perlite mix. Now it is on my front stoop (left) alongside Northcountry, another MN bloob (right):
Whether they like it or not, they are a married couple now, and I expect them to "cross-pollinate."
Northsky gets better taste reviews in the literature as compared to Top-Hat. However, it is getting harder and harder to find Northsky... and Top-Hat seems to be available everywhere nowadays. Go figure.
Northcountry gets good reviews too. It is widely available.
I am hoping these two bushes give me some bloobs this summer...
