Ordered my blueberry plants

Three different Southern Highbush varieties. Wooot woot. They come late Feb so I got to get started on making my holes and preparing the bed. Yay. Not in dog area. I already have a Mulberry tree 1 year old in same general area to distract the birds. It is thriving and is a smaller variety....more of a large bush.

Have your soil tested! I can't grow blueberries to save my life in our soil. Our raspberries and strawberries do well though.

We typically have acidic soil here. Saving coffee grounds though and will use pine mulch around them. But I do need to do that.

I read to use peat moss and Holly Tone as well. We have acidic soil and they still don't grow. I think they are really picky plants. Everything else that likes acidic soil thrives.

I will let you know! Some of the folks I know say they just thrive around here. I got O'Neill, Jubilee, and Sweetheart.....at Walmart, they don't even label the darned pots and I did mail order. Got my Mulberry mail order last year. I have a spot I want to grow some Paw Paws.

I think different varieties thrive in different locations. I know the only raspberries that seem to do well on our hill are everbearers that you chop down in the spring so you only get one crop.

I LOVE my blueberry plants!! They thrive here...only 45 miles north of you, Nancy, so yours should do GREAT!

PS - Be sure sure and pick them before the birds do ...or put netting over them.
