BLUEBERRY - MISTY

Blueberry misty compliments of Burnt RidgeBotanical Name: Vaccinium spp
Description

One of the most attractive Blueberries with bluish green leaves which contrast perfectly with striking pink and white spring flowers. You can get an even bigger harvest when planted with other varieties. Because of low chill hours it is a favorite in the subtropics. The Misty is one of the first varieties to fruit and the size is medium to large. Their flavour is sweet and spicy and perform brilliantly in pots.

Blueberry - Misty

I have had this Misty variety just growing on it's own for three years now and though it doesn't seem to produce much fruit (I think my 11 year old gets to them way too quick!) they are incredibly delicious in flavour - a real sweet 'blue' taste to them. | B F - Springfield, NSW 25-Aug-2011

Blueberry - Misty (Cutting) 8/10

Itdepends1's Edible Fruits
Update: 1926 days 2hrs

Comments: -

Large quantity of cow manure added to sandy soil  sodium bentonite (clay, stock feed) for moisture/prevent water repellency. Pine needle mulch flowers of sulphur to decrease soil pH (Blueberries like acid soils).

Note blueberries will prefer some shelter from sun- particularly in warmer climates (e.g. Perth).

I have one in a half wine barrel which receives shade on the east side from an apricot and on the west side by an orange. The second one that was in a wine barrel was not sheltered on the east and didn't do as well. It's since been transferred to the side of the house (in what used to be----- or is still somewhat- the fernery)

Update 2012 blueberries continue to do well- particularly Misty Blue and Nelly Kelly

Brad1's Edible Fruits

Bought in small pot Dec 2009. Potted up Dec 22. Mix of commercial grade unfertilized potting mix, peat conditioning mix (~half-half), plus some zeolite, spongelite, cow manure, pine fines, coffee grounds and a final squirt of lemon juice. Have azalea slow release fertilizer for use when its adjusted to the new pot. pH rose to 7, so iron sulphate used to lower it longer term. Flowering August 2010, was a bit late with fungicide spray. Still young, so thinned fruit and flowers mid september, only leaving a handful to taste.

Planted: 2009

copper spray, pest oil, lime sulfur as needed

Supplier - Bonnirigg Garden Center ( which Daleys is one of its supplier) heheheh small world after all .

Got it last summer 08

It was so small, no fruits at all .

But now it is buddings to flowerings .

So easy maintenance for these blueberries, every 2 months I 'd just give it a scoop or 2 of the slow release fertiliser

Msjekyll's Edible Fruits
Update: 640 days 18hrs

Have moved them to a new location with less root competition will see if things improve.

Well the move hasn't worked I have been told they like morning sun so will have to move them again (when things cool down a bit)

Moved back into pots and placed them in a sheltered spot with morning sun - got a few fruits this year.  Fruited and growing better, but not outstanding.


Update 2014 - still struggling ...

Homegrownsbest's Edible Fruits
Update: 645 days 7hrs

Comments: - Had some really big beautiful juicy blueberries off the Misty and it's still very young. I've started to (with all my blueberries) remove the flowers and concentrate more on plant growth. I've pruned a little several weeks ago and already there is new growth. It's currently in full sun (I'm in Ipswich Qld so some feared summer days) which I'm finding the 14 hours a day in full sun a bit too much to bare for most of my blueberries so I'm in the process of building a frame to net to assist with some relief from that afternoon sun (and birds of course when fruiting). So I'll see what happens over the coming months.

Comments: - Love Blueberries, at present I buy them forzen. Looking forward to getting a good supply of my own growing. Have 7 different plants do far. Blueberries have proven to be difficult to grow here. Have recently transplanted them into another area of the garden that gets less afternoon sun in summer. The have been planted in Azalea potting mx and peat moss. So far they seem to prefer their new location.
