Learning Download: How to Grow Blueberries

Fresh blueberries are a summer staple in many gardener’s homes. Blueberries can be used for jams, making muffins or eating raw.

Before Planting: Soil pH should be between 4 and 5, as blueberries thrive in acidic soil. Prior to planting, prepare a mixture of two parts loam and one part moss, oak leaf mold, compost or aged sawdust.

Planting: Plant blueberry bushes as early in the spring as possible. Their root system is shallow, so be sure to plant in soil that holds moisture bu also drains well. Make sure its roots are spread out in the hole and then pack tightly with soil. Blueberries also can grow well in containers.

Watering: Blueberries require at least 1 to 2 inches of water per week.

Fertilizer: Apply fertilizer for the first time one month after planting, using 1/2 ounce of a 10-10-10 fertilizer applied about 6 inches form the crown of the plant.

Days to Maturity: Harvest blueberries in late July or early August.

Harvesting: Once berries turn blue, wait a few days and then pick them.

Tips: Blueberries are popular amongst birds, so add a protective cage around the plants.
