    Great variety!

    I planted Premier along with Brightwell and Powder blue. I attempted to remove flowers so it would focus on root production but it begged to differ. Great fruit production in its first season in the ground! I believe the Premier and Brightwell had the best fruit production but that could also be due to something I have not noticed in the planting. Highly recommend though!

    For the price, I was really expecting small plants and was shocked by the tall thriving plants I received that were LOADED with blue berries already! WOW! They were over 2 feet tall!
