Extend Your Blueberry Harvest! 🫐 #shorts

Make sure to select varieties that are hardy to your climate for best performance. Certain types require more chilling hours than others in order to set flowers and fruit. Before making a purchase, do some research or contact your local nursery. Your local garden center or nursery typically sell cultivars that are adapted to and do well in your climate. It’s also helpful to get in touch with your cooperative extension service in your county, which are usually located at universities or government offices or buildings. Check out the planting tips below! ⬇️ ✅Choose a location with full sun to part shade and well-draining fertile soil. ✅Dig a hole 2X the width of the pot. ✅If you need to add organic matter work in 1-2 inches of compost into the soil. ✅Know your soil pH. Blueberries thrive best in soil with a pH between 4.5 to 5.5. Based on your soil test, if you need to lower the pH , mix in 1 1/4 cups soil acidifier into the soil for young shrubs. We use elemental sulfur which is a safer choice than aluminum sulfate. ✅Make sure the soil in the pot is moist before planting your blueberry plant. ✅Set plant with roots no more than 1/2 inch above ground soil level. Backfill and press soil around the plant. Space plants 3-6 feet apart and rows 7 feet apart. They can be grown as close as 2-2.5 feet as a hedgerow depending on variety. ✅Water thoroughly and apply organic mulch such as wood chips to retain moisture and suppress weeds. Keep mulch about 3-4 inches away from the stems to prevent insect and disease infestations. Happy Gardening!💚🫐
