I know someone in the same county who gardens. Your zone is 6B and some of the area verges on 7A which makes it possible for you to go with either blueberry kit.

Fairfax is Hardiness Zone 7a, which means that the coldest it normally gets in the winter is 0-5F.

According to the listing, the blueberry varieties in the Northern Kit are best grown in Zones 3-7, and the varieties the Southern Kit are best grown in Zones 4-8.

Technically, you could grow either kit; but you're right on the edge of being cold enough in winter for the Northern and Fairfax is in Heat Zone 6-7 (2-3 months of above 86F) which may be too hot in the summer... so, you would probably have more success with the Southern Kit.

Thanks for the detailed information. I was also thinking the Southern would be the best choice. If it's still on sale, I'll buy it.

Ohhhh, now I found another deal:

Cedar Raised Garden Bed $30

What do you guys think? Maybe I should go with that first before getting seeds?

Where did you find out about that information? I may finally have time to get around and garden this year! *crosses fingers*
