Blueberries

blueberry blueberryflower

Blueberries are always a welcome addition to any fruit salad, fruit smoothie, muffin or pancake recipe, or pie. The trick to having luscious fruit is having the right growing conditions for them. These are perennial plants that can be grown in your garden or berry patch.

Plant several plants in an area for good pollination as blueberries are not self pollinating.

 

 

LIGHT: Blueberries like a lot of sun so provide an unobstructed location

SOIL:  Blueberries prefer a soil of acidity between 4.09 and 5.0 with plenty of drainage. 

FERTILIZER: Use ammonium sulfate or Rhododendron or Azalea fertilizer. This will help maintain the proper acidity

 

This plant is seasonally available in the spring of the year in 10" pots.
