These dark-colored berries sit near the top of the antioxidant charts. They contain healthful substances known to protect the heart system, fight cancer, lower cholesterol, and stabilize blood sugar levels. Clinical research has proven that blueberries can help keep skin and hair looking younger, while improving memory function as well.

What if you could pick all the blueberries you want from your own backyard? Even if you have a small amount of backyard space in the city, you can grow blueberries, which perform very well in raised beds, large pots, tubs, other containers. In fact, blueberries are one of the simplest plants to grow. In this booklet, you will learn how to grow them and enjoy a sweet harvest of ripe, nutritious blueberries.
