This season, I am anticipating diving into blueberry growing. I was hoping to get suggestions on which two to grow. The goal would be to have a staggered haverest, and to select two varieties that are fairly distinct from the other. I live in a northern climate. I’ve I have a few varieties in mind based off of descriptions, but I was curious what other folks were growing and enjoy.
On a side note, I was also curious how to protect the bushes from deer. Would wrapping the bushes in bird netting be effective? I was hoping to avoid having a yard full of welded wire cages, and given the shape of bluebeeries, they may lend themselves well to being wrapped in some way.
