Bushel & Berry Selection

Bushel & Berry bushes (previously called BrazelBerries) are a collection of berry varieties that offer ornamental qualities as well as amazing edible fruits on small stature bushes.  The idea is that you can plant these plants in containers on your patio, balcony or anywhere in your landscape, requiring minimal care and allowing for a rewarding and easy harvest.

BrazelBerry Raspberry Shortcake

'Jelly Bean'

Try out Bushel & Berry 'Raspberry Shortcake'--a true dwarf, thornless raspberry plant that produces sweet fruits. Or try 'Blueberry Glaze', 'Peach Sorbet', 'Pink Icing', 'Perpetua' or 'Jelly Bean'--four super compact blueberry plants that have incredible ornamental qualities while producing beautiful plump berries.  New to the collection is 'Blackberry Baby Cakes', which is a dwarf thornless bush reaching only 3' to 4' in height and width that produces large, sweet, juicy berries.

Hardy Figs are now available! Choose from 'Chicago Hardy', 'Desert King' or 'Olympian'.  All three of these are cool season varieties, hardy to zone 5 or 6, and will bear medium to extra large fruit on eventual 8' to 10' trees.
Early Shrubs 

There will be a selection of shrubs available this weekend as well.  Choose from Rhododendrons such as Hellikki, Mandarin Lights, Nova Zembla and PJM Elite Star, French Lilacs, Boxwood and Forsythia, which will soon be a popular request as people begin to see the brilliant golden blossoms burst open along the branches before any signs of foliage.

We just planted our first crop of lettuce last weekend and are looking forward to picking fresh.  The little wire cages are to keep the quail from eating the tender transplants.
