Blueberry Bush Care

Grow in full sun.

Fertilizations will accelerate growth and keep your plant well fed. We suggest using our slow release fertilizer, or something similar.

Attempt to keep soil moist but not wet. Mulching the base of the plant with untreated mulch will help ensure moist, cool soil. 

Water regularly after planting until established, or in periods of drought. Its ideal soil is moist, rich, acidic, loamy, and well draining. 

Prune in winter, being sure to remove the old, dead growth.
