The Q&A Archives: Japanese Blueberry

Question: We are planting the Japanese Blueberry trees/shrubs which are in 40 gallon containers on the fence line for privacy from neighbors. What distance from the fence should the be planted? What we are wanting is a manicured shrub about 20-30 feet in high and thick from top to bottom.

Thanks for your help. Let me know if you need additional information.

Answer: If you plan to shear your Japanese Blueberry trees to make a hedge, you'll want to plant them on 10' centers. This will provide adequate room for them to grow into one another without overcrowding. You'll also want to keep them 8-10' from your fence.
