It is important to regularly water your blueberry plant, (at least bimonthly for two months). You should also choose a location where there is enough space between bushes, depending on whether your variety is a dwarfing half-high, or more vigorous. Please see below for our planting guidance:
- Dig a hole that is twice the radius of the rootball.
- Before planting, drench your plant’s rootball.
- Place the pot in the planting hole, making sure that it sits no lower than an inch below the ground.
- Fill the planting hole with a mix of compost and garden soil, and add fertiliser and mycorrhizal fungi. Take care to not compress the soil.
- Once you are happy with your efforts, provide your plant with a good watering.
- Add mulch on top (whether bark and wood chippings, compost, manure, leaf-mould, and stones). Try to keep the mulch from touching the stem.
- Apply fertiliser, and replace decomposed mulch come spring.
Blueberry plants are wonderfully easy to grow. Below we address some common query topics:
- Hardiness: Blueberry plants derive from North America, which can have much colder winters than the UK. Therefore, mild winters are less likely to damage your blueberry plant.
- Position: In the UK, the greatest barrier to successful fruiting is a lack of sunlight, so planting in full sun is recommended. However, blueberries still tolerate light shade.
- Soil: Blueberry plants are suited to acidic soils below 5.5 pH, and anything above this will reduce the amount of nutrients they absorb. You can increase the acidity of your soil by watering with rainwater, and using pine needles and ericaceous compost as mulch. With chalky soils, you are better off planting in pots and filling them with ericaceous compost. It also is important that you avoid waterlogged soils, which will starve your blueberry plant of oxygen.
