Edible Landscaping: Berries in Bloom

The berry bushes in my edible landscape are loving the heat we had this week. The plants have turned their faces to the sun and bloomed.

The strawberries were first to blossom with the ever-bearing white flowers competing with the shocking pink petals of the Fragoo strawberries.

Small pink and white flower clusters on the Bearberry branches have me very excited. The red berries supposedly make fantastic preserves.

Both the North Blue and Northland blueberry bushes are loaded with flowers, promising a fruitful season and the planned addition of two more bushes will hopefully promote good fertilization.

Not all my little Lingonberry plants survived the winter but I am thrilled to see some of the remaining plants in flower. I'm hoping for Lingonberry sauce later in the year!

Bees and other pollinators are starting to scope out the garden and these berry blooms will keep them coming back. I'm so happy spring is here. Welcome sunlight, warmth, and all green and flowering things. Welcome, welcome.

See you in the garden,

Sue
