Hi Lori73,  i found a brilliant chap on u tube (HOW TO PLANT BLUEBERRIES BY JEFF) just the kind of real info your looking for, he would be great on TV and talks sense ,by the way it seems all blueberries are fairly self fertile but do far better mixed as he shows in his vid well worth a look, iv also ordered Spartan ,a friend advised they are really good fruiters along with 2 others hope this helps ,good luck.

Last year a friend bought me a LIDL fig,i fed it on a little nettle juice and well chopped up seaweed for 3 months, it is absolutely a beauty now and ready to go into a pit ,so sometimes the Lidl  stuffs good as well as cheap,, my Blues  will be in ordinary 12 " pots as it seems they dont like big pots too soon, and lots of people here recommend pots better than open ground and it solves the soil composition as they say ericaccous is the one. good luck matey

Hi newboy2 yes twigs not strong enough and as u say difficult, in the end we bought 2 lengths of semi rigid farmers type fence the one with 2 inches square mesh  one metre high sold at any length , Farm supplies sell it very cheap and it last forever ,we always find these suppliers  very helpful and cheap.
