TRIED BUT DIED

Blueberry - Sharpblue (Seedling)

Julie1's Edible Fruits
Update: 2031 days 1hrs

Comments: -

Difficulty keeping the water up to them during summer in pots, so I planted them in the ground but died the next season anyway.  The Misty's which I kept in pots but moved into the shade are still doing very well.
