Two of my blueberry bushes rose from the dead!
Last year I planted three blueberry bushes. I read their tags, talked to the salespeople, did no research, and planted them. When the snow finally melted a few weeks ago, I was saddened to see that two of the little fellas did not make it. I found out that over the winter, as the ground is accumulating snow and vegetation slowly disappears, the damn rabbits will munch whatever they can get. What they munched was, to my dismay, my blueberry bushes.
I was thisclose to pulling the two bushes, thinking that they were gone, gone, gone…I even perused other blueberry bushes at gardening centers and plant sales. A little part of me needed to wait just a little bit longer to see what would happen. And I am SO happy that I did. They are “pruned” to the bone, no doubt, but they are definitely budding!
