Suggestions for Figs, blueberries and raspberries?
I live in Knoxville and I'm looking to add a fig tree, several blueberry bushes and some autumn bearing raspberries to my back yard. I live in the city so I have to be selective about what I put in. My yard can only hold so much. :-) Can anyone tell me what varieties they've tried? I'd like the blueberries to be under 6 feet tall and if they're evergreen, that would be even better. Sunshine Blue is one kind I'm looking at. And as far as figs go, I've read on the net how to care for them but other than that, I know nothing about them. I don't even know if I'll like them because I've never been able to find fresh figs around here to try!
PS - And if anyone knows of a good plum to try, I'd love to hear that as well. Several professionals I've talked to have discouraged me from growing them saying that they don't do well here. I don't really understand that because my grandmother in Nashville had a plum tree in her yard and it did great without any care.
