Growing Fruits and Berries

Rabbiteye blueberries, along with figs and blackberries, are among the easiest fruits to grow in SE NC, while peaches and nectarines are the most challenging. If you are considering adding fruit and berry plants to your yard, think of choosing which type to plant kind of like adopting a puppy - There are a lot of things you need to know to choose the right one, and once you get it home it takes a bit of training and care to have a productive relationship. Lots of garden centers have fruit and berry plants for sale currently, but before you rush out and choose the cutest one, take some time to plan for your new plant to ensure the money you spend is not wasted.
