1. Vary your tastes: Blueberries come in many varieties that can be grown across the nation - do a little research on the best blueberries and other berries for your area at your local garden center.
2. Invite other plants: "Plant another item to provide interest and fruit once [the berries are] done producing - maybe nasturtiums or an ornamental sweet potato vine," says Cara Hague, horticulturist at the Civic Center Garden of Greater Cincinnati.
3. Know your audience: "Take an inventory and grow what you're able to," says Corina Bullock, youth education coordinator at the Civic Garden Center of Greater Cincinnati. "Grow what your family likes!"
