Japanese Blueberry - Knowledgebase Question

The Woodlands, TX
Question by cchale

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.

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.
