Plant an Edible Hedge of Blueberries

This winter I ripped out a hedge of privet and replaced it with blueberries. Not only do they produce delicious fruits in summer, in autumn the leaves turn shades of orange, red and yellow.

    Good for you, I always wished companies with large windows and lots of sun would grow veggies or herbs.

    A hedge of blueberries would be my husband's dream. He could eat them all day and all night. I have tried to grow them, but without much luck. They seem to last a year or two and then die off.

      @Kim Smith They really need acidic soil. If you don't have that, you might try growing them in containers.
