Blueberry Seeds - Low-Bush Wild Blueberry - Heirloom Untreated NON-GMO From Canada

Blueberry Seeds - Low-Bush Wild Blueberry

(Vaccinium angustifolium) Perennial. Zones 2-6. 

Picture it: You're walking through the forest. You come to a bit of a clearing and take a moment to breathe in the beauty of your surroundings. Gratitude overwhelms you as you realize that you've decided to rest in a wild blueberry patch! The intense flavour of wild blueberries (or lowbush blueberries) is unmistakable and for most of us a rare and spontaneous treat. Larger, highbush blueberry varieties have virtually taken over the blueberry industry, but as we know, bigger doesn't necessarily mean better. Wild blueberries are sweeter and have that powerful blueberry flavour that is just unmatched. The smaller fruit also make them superior when it comes to baking.

You can bring home that woodsy treat! Growing lowbush blueberries from seed is surprisingly easy (despite a low germination rate). They grow exceptionally well in highly acidic, well-draining forest soil and make for a low-maintenance, edible ground cover. Once established, your plants will spread via rhizomes and your wild blueberry patch will grow and grow!
