Raspberries do well here, I have been able to grow blackberries but I live downtown and we have a warmer micro climate than other parts of town. Chokecherries grow naturally around here in the foothills
and can grow in your yard but they need some room, they are wonderful in syrup and jelly. Blueberries really can not grow here, it will be hard to get the bushes to survive or yield fruit, if you can return the blueberry bushes I would recommend it. A good resource for gardening is Colorado State University, www.ext.Colostate.edu/menu_garden.html

Yikes! After some research it seems that blueberries ARE very difficult to grow here with much success. Not impossible, but probably not worth all the effort. I may return them after all....

Thanks everyone for your suggestions.

I have a blueberry bush. I planted it 3-4 years ago. It's survived and it does get blueberries but it's not a very full bush yet. It's still small. I think I will add some peat moss to it. I moved it to a sunnier location last year so we'll see if I killed it. Hopefully it blooms this year.
