small potted blueberry

jimfnc(7aNC)November 3, 2012

just received a blueberry bush, about 9 inches high in 3 in pot.

We are within days of 1st frost here. Should I plant or keep indoors till early spring? I have several others I've grown for years, but kids got me one for birthday.

In your zone I'd plant it and mulch well. I'd also protect from critters like rabbit and deer if needed. Say some wire mesh overhead. It will make it through the winter outside. Things can go badly wrong inside in winter.
