How to Grow Blueberries

If planted in a suitable sunny site, blueberry bushes are almost completely pest free. However, this plant will not thrive or often even grow in the wrong soils. They must be grown in soils that are highly acidic (pH levels of 4.5-5.5), uniformly moist (not wet), and nutrient-poor. The soils must be high in organic matter because this provides a slow-release of nutrients to the plant.

The best blueberries for container life are highbush varieties (as opposed to rabbiteye) that have been bred for short stature, commonly called "half-high." Plant blueberry bushes in acidic soil and in containers that are at least 18 to 24 inches deep. To get the best harvest, the flowers must cross pollinate with a nearby blueberry bush that is a different variety but is also flowering at that particular time of year. Just find 2 varieties that produce fruit at the same time of year.
