Southern Highbush Blueberry - Hybrid (Viccinium Corymbosum) LIMITED
- Growing From Seed
Growing blueberries can be done from seed. It's a slow process, but worthwhile. They can be started at any time of the year. Make sure you have good quality seeds and keep them in the freezer until you are ready to use them.
- Start by preparing a seed tray and sprinkling them onto some peat moss. Once sprinkled, lightly move the soil with your fingers to cover the seeds very slightly, and then water. Always keep them moist.
- It can take six to eight weeks for the first seeds to appear. They will be grass-like with a couple of tiny leaves on top. Other seeds may take up to three months to appear.
- In the first year, you will get plants no taller than about 5-6 inches. Be sure to protect them during the winter by leaving them indoors on a sunny windowsill.
- Once the plants are large enough to handle, transplant them into pots and keep well watered in sunny, warm conditions.
- In year two the plants will have grown to about one to two feet tall and will start producing a small number of fruits. It will take several years when growing blueberries from seed, before the resulting plants will produce a lot of fruit, but once established they will keep you supplied for decades as long as you feed and maintain them.
- Although this blueberryseeds are from the type of high tolerance to high summer temps and drought tolerance, we cannot guarantee you the percentages or the seeds will germinated. This is because Blueberry is non native fruit tree for Malaysia climates.
