Welcome to Homegrown/Homemade, a video series from our sister sites FineGardening.com and FineCooking.com. We're following a gardener (Danielle Sherry) and a cook (Sarah Breckenridge) as they plant, maintain, harvest, store, and prepare garden vegetables  under the watchful eye of Juno, Sarah's inquisitive dog.

I have 2 different kind of blueberries planted in the same planter, one is blooming and producing berries but the other one just looks like a green plant with no flowering at all and no berries??

Keep checking back over the next few months for these videos to go live. Happy gardening!
