Hi, I purchased 4 blueberry plants in tubes from Home Depot this past Sunday. Do they need to be kept watered until planted? Thank you.

If there is soil around the roots, you should keep it watered. If the plants are bare root (no soil, just peat moss or sawdust) they will stay moist and you won't need to water them until you plant them. Plant as soon as possible, though, so you won't run the risk of the plants deteriorating. Best wishes with your new blueberries.
