Special Attributes

Woodard is one of the shortest and most spreading of Blueberry bushes. Its berries are large in size, light blue in color, and tart unless they are allowed to fully ripen. This said, we recommend leaving the berries on the bush for a few extra days or so to make for a sweet flavor, and with Woodard's shorter height it's easier to harvest the berries. Woodard performs better in the southernmost regions as it requires less chilling hours to set buds.  




Cultural Preferences

Blueberry plants grow best in an acidic (pH of 4.8 to 5.2), organically rich, moist, well-drained soil in full sun to part shade. The more sun the better for best berry production. The shallow, fibrous roots of blueberry plants like a consistently moist but well-drained soil which can be provided by with a layer of organic mulch. Although blueberries are self-fertile, cross-pollination produces the best fruit crop (larger berries and larger yields). Therefore it is best to plant more than one variety that will bloom at the same time. Blueberry season can be extended by planting early, mid-season and late varieties. Make sure to plant two different cultivars/varieties for each season. USDA Zones: 7b-10b  Find Your Zone >
