    What kind of blueberry, blackberry, and raspberry bushes do you recommend for the Blount Count area? I have researched some but still can’t decide.

      Hi Sharon,

      From personal experience, I can tell you that thornless blackberries and muscadine grapes both grow well in Middle Tennessee, as do a large number of varieties of blueberries. However, for more detail and specific varieties, I would recommend calling either one of the contacts listed above, such as Glenda Ross at Greenbriar Nursery (865-742-8708 or rossglenda@gmail.com), or get in touch with your local extension agent with the University of Tennessee Extension Service: https://utextension.tennessee.edu/Pages/offices.aspx. Hope this helps!
