Edible Blueberry Plant



Delicious edible blueberries specially designed to thrive in areas with mild winters. Before these Southern highbush varieties were introduced around 2010, blueberries only thrived in areas with particular chill requirements.

All selections are excellent for freezing, jams, baking and eating fresh. O'Neals are especially plump and juicy, while Sunshine is especially rich and sweet. Sharpblue and Southmoon being both sweet and juicy, but less plump than O'Neal.

Blueberries produce the most abundant and flavorful crops when they are neighbored by a different variety; so we recommend that you purchase more than one variety for your garden and plant them within 20' of each other to improve the production of both plants.

With attractive foliage and generous growth habit reaching up to 6'-8' in height, these upstarts a must have for a California edible or pollinator garden. Delivered in a plastic container smaller than a 1 gallon size, and about 8x larger than a 4" pot.

Southern highbush blueberry bush varieties are hybrids of V. corymbosum and a Floridian native, V. darrowii, that can grow between 6-8 feet in height. This variety of blueberry was created to allow for berry production in areas of mild winters, as they require less chilling time to break bud and flower. The bushes blossom in the late winter, so frost will damage production. Therefore, southern highbush varieties are best suited to areas with very mild winters. Some southern highbush cultivars are:

Donate a Street Tree



Street trees can have incredible value to residents; who experience both improved air quality and reduced temperatures as more asphalt is cooled by shade trees.

However, visitors can also appreciate the value of a nice street tree; enjoying both cool street parking + refreshing walks under their canopy. Some might say that street trees provide pedestrians with "nature baths" in the middle of the city.

Street trees can also provide valuable habitat and a source of food for birds, pollinators, and beneficial insects. . . not to mention the benefits of fragrance and flowers for all to enjoy as the seasons allow.

. . .And, did you know that all trees, including street trees, have the unique benefit of storing carbon in their bark, trunk, branches and leaves? The larger the tree, the more carbon it can hold. Meaning street trees have another benefit that living beings worldwide can enjoy: they combat climate change by cleaning up carbon pollution.  Meaning your dontation will play a small, but vital role in preventing catastrophic climate events such as Katrina, Harvey and Irma.

If you can't plant a tree on your own property (for instance, if you live in an apartment, are already satisfied with your landscaping, or don't have room in your garden for a tree) and would like to improve the lives of others, here is a chance to purchase a tree that Design By Nature will thoughtfully install with organic fertilizers and pest control measures in a neighborhood that would benefit from the presence of shade trees.

The species of tree you purchase will be selected by a professional designer; meaning it will be appropriate for the soil, temperature, culture and site conditions of the location; for instance, canopies will be selected so as not to interfere with power cables overhead. When possible, they also will provide edibles for the community to enjoy.

Trees: the donation that keeps on giving.
