RE: Blueberries (Follow-Up #5)

I have grown blueberries since 1985. You should acidify your water down to at least ph6 (vinegar works). Use pine sawdust, peatmoss and composted horse manure (1 year old) in equal amounts. Buy plants in 3 quart containers at Lowes or Home Depot or nursery. Plants spread their roots in the top foot of soil. Wood chips make a good base and mulch. Watch your leaves as they will indicate problems. USU Extension service has information on blueberry growing. (http://extension.usu.edu/yardandgarden/htm/fruits-and-nuts/blueberrie s) 15 to 25 gallon black nursery pots work for plants older than 3 years (3 qt=2year). Start with 6" of wood chips in the bottom.
