    Hi all,

    This ad (which I just received it today) caught my eyes, since I am able to figure out what they are telling us.

    Study this ad very carefully:
    BlueBerryPlant.jpg

    You will notice that it says that the blueberry plant can spew out blueberries at that rate of "up to 4 pints a day".

    Experienced gardeners will know each plant will yield up to 1 pint blueberries every other day for up to 2-3 weeks, not year-around.

    If that ad is true (year-around spew rate) as it says, each blueberry plant would spurt out blueberries that would be more than enough to fill Olympic sized pool every year (based on my rough calculation). :)

    "up to 4 pints" = between 0 and 4 pints, per day :p

    can be true if they change the gene of the seed, and create a stable hybird. same with they do with marijuana to keep plants instantly flowering, and make their buds into cola size cans.

    science baby, but keyword is upto. I can sell you up to 1,000,000 AA list to. :)

    Do they ship to the UK?
    I'll buy it because I'm not a blueberry expert and they'll look good in my garden.
    Don't only look at things from your own perspective.
    Look at it from your targeted audience.

    While we're chatting the volume production of a blueberry bush
    this guy is banking hard selling twigs!
