Create an edible and attractive landscape for you, the birds, or both with Northland Blueberry (Vaccinium corymbosum Northland). This popular native blueberry grows in a compact size (no more than 5 feet high and wide) but is packed with a high yield of fruit. Between flowering and fruiting, this Highbush blueberry will attract bees, butterflies, and birds to your garden. Then come late July through early August, you can enjoy the delicious taste and nutrition of fresh blueberries. After it’s done fruiting, enjoy watching the leaves turn in fall.

Northland Blueberry Bush Care

Choose a spot with full sun (at least 6 hours a day) and set healthy transplants out in early spring in a hole that is at least two times as large as the root ball around the plant. Add good quality soil and some moistened peat moss. Do not add fertilizer at planting; wait about 3 to 4 weeks. Keep the plant watered well so its roots do not dry out while growing in their new home. Space each blueberry at least 5 feet apart to give them room to grow (and for you to get to the fruit). 

Growing Northland Blueberry Bushes

In the first year of growth, remove flowers that appear. Your new blueberry bush needs to put energy toward rooting and growing; it will not produce a yield of fruit for another season or two. Prune any dead out at planting time and as needed in the first year or two of growth. Continue to remove the oldest branches with no production and let some new branches fill in. If birds are eating your new berries, add bird netting over the shrubs. Add a fresh layer of organic mulch above the plant each year.

Growing Northland Blueberry Bushes in Containers

Northland blueberry prefers growing in the ground but it can grow in a large container that is at least 2 feet deep and wide. Make sure it has drainage and keep the plant consistently watered. Use a soil that is 50 percent standard potting mix and 50 percent peat moss. Place the container in full sun, giving it a little afternoon shade at first. Mulch will help retain some moisture.

Watering Northland Blueberry Bushes

Water plants often and consistently, especially in their first year and while flowering and fruiting. Give container-grown plants more frequent watering, since they will dry out faster.

Feeding Northland Blueberry Bushes

Do not fertilize at planting time. Fertilize after every few weeks with a balanced fertilizer, and avoid fertilizing after late July.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability).

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.


If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!


Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
