Finch Blueberry Nursery


PLANT VARIETIES & HARDINESS ZONES

Hardiness zones are general indications of areas in which plants are hardy. Plants may grow well in warmer zones, but will not produce a suitable quantity of fruit, and the same is possible for colder zones. "Micro" zones may exist within a zone relative to elevation, northern and southern exposure, air, drainage, etc; therefore, use the hardiness zone indicators as a general indicator.  Rely more upon knowledge of blueberries that are growing in your area and horticultural recommendations.
