Plantinyum:
Hi !  I have a place where I would like to plant tree blueberry bushes . The thing is its very close to my greenhouse which will be heated in the winter, south exposure , and I was wondering since bb in my experience need very little warmth to exit from winter rest ,will the warmth that the greenhouse provides be enough to wake them earlier than naturally ??
I can provide a picture of the place if needed .... tanks

containerman:
you need to check how many chill hours are required by each variety. blueberries can tolerate plenty of cold anywhere between -10 to -30F depending upon the variety.

yeah I know they tolerate cold, but I was afraid they,d wake up of dormancy if the greenhouse warms them up ,since it will be heated, and they would be planted right next to it....

I'm not understanding why you would want them near a heat source ?

Francis_Eric:
Maybe it is the only spot he has

I think you should try for Highbush Blue berry
not because of heat just because it gets big , and you get a good amount of berries

also Being big Could deflect the heat, but they have blueberries in Florida (also Sparkle berry)

I would not worry about it , but really I do not know
seems pretty indestructable blue berries.



Some people are pretty crafty here
Could he place something to absorb the heat (heatsink) between the plant, and the Bush?
Maybe that ty vec styrofoam , but that might look getto (or that yellow foam from a mattress )
