frost or freeze effect on blueberries

billy-o(5)May 25, 2013

I live in northeast Ohio and my blueberries are almost pea size, some bigger and smaller. Also still have flower buds . With a frost warning or freeze warning how will that affect my blueberries?

As long as it stays above 28 the flowers should be fine. If it gets cold enough the fruit could freeze which could ruin it but as a rule 28 is the magic number. Water the plants the day before the freeze.
