So far it's growing!
by prismoq, July 23, 2017

The blueberry bush right now is doing well. Some baby fruits are coming out and bigger fruits are turning blue and ripening.
First of, I called Westminster Nursery on 07/3/2017 to find out if they have my order from Monrovia, ordered it 06/14/2017 PDT.
Spoke to Nila, she said they have it but they did not call me. She said I can pick it up the next day, which is 07/4/2017 and they will close at 2:30pm. I went and picked it up and the plant didn't look healthy to me. It had a lot of dead branches and leaves that turned brown and the pictures I will send you are the before and after.
The before picture was already pruned by me two days after the pick up. The after picture is more healthier plant due to constant rain here in Queens, New York. I did not say anything to the people at the nursery. I was kind of disappointed to see that my blueberry bush looked like it was neglected while they had it for awhile. Monrovia mentioned that Westminster Nursery will contact me when it arrives but it was 20 days before I received it and the plant looked sickly too. I know that you are a reliable and trustworthy company that is why I ordered from you. In the future I may still find new plants that I want to grow and get them from Monrovia but I would have to think twice about picking it up from Westminster Nursery. Thank you for the experience. I will do my very best to keep my blueberry bush alive and thriving.
