This is a special mix of Northern and Southern Highbush blueberry varieties. If you live within zones 3-9, there's a berry in this mix that will that will perform for your climate. These seeds are pre-stratified and ready to be germinated.

Blueberries can be propagated very easily from seeds. They do best if they are started in the months of january and February, however they will germinate anytime of the if they receive enough light and heat. You should see nearly 100% germination. Plant the seed in a flat or bed of Canadian Spaghnum Peat Moss. The peat moss should be two or three inches deep. Sprinkle the seed evenly over the top of the peat moss and gently cover the seed. The seed must be very near the surface, no more than ⅛ to ¼ inch deep. Keep the peat moss moist. Place the flat or bed in a warm location. A temperature of 70 to 80 degrees would be good. With this moist condition you may have some trouble with fungus at the surface of the soil. It is advisable to keep a small spray bottle of organic fungus spray handy to give them a spray every 7 to 10 days to protect the seeds. Blueberry seeds are slow to germinate. The first seed will come to life in about four weeks, most will germinate over the next couple of months. The new plants will be very tiny and fragile. Leave the plants in the flat or bed until they are two to three inches tall, then remove and separate them being very careful to not damage the roots of these tiny, fragile plants. Pot each individual plant in a container three to four inches in diameter using only Canadian Sphagnum Peat Moss, again keep the soil moist. Wait about three weeks to begin fertilizing, use a gentle organic fertilizer or compost tea at half strength. Be very careful especially the first year to keep the plants well watered and fertilized. Keep the plants in the pots until they are around 8 inches tall then repot them into a larger size pot such as a trade one gallon container. Grow the plants until they are 12 to 18 inches tall before transplanting them into the field. It is best to transplant in the fall after the plant has gone dormant. Many will bloom and have berries within two years. It will take the plant around seven years to reach maturity and full production.
