small blueberry bush: barrel planter or in-ground
We have two small blueberry bushes arriving from Gurneys tomorrow. We think we have a good location in front of the house, but we still aren't sure how the plants will do there.
Alternately, the wife likes the idea of planting them in some half wine barrel planters. The worry there would be freezing since more of the base is exposed to wind.
We're zone 7a -- some freeze thaw and usually one to two major snow events each winter.
Any advice is appreciated!
