Hope to see blueberries in summer. Plant arrived, and landscaper told me to put container in ground. Wrong pet nursery so it’s now in garage for cold hours and propped to drain and avoid root rot. We will see!

Thank you so much for your thoughtfulness. I have never grown them either. So, I’m learning as I go.

I wish I could grow blueberries. My soil is not acidic.

One way apparently is to dig up the bed and mix the soil and compost of an acidic nature. Then to fertilize with a blueberry/acidic fertilizer in the spring. I don’t have acidic soil either. My plants are in containers at present. Going to brave this plan in the spring. The more I do, the braver I get. I literally killed almost everything prior to this summer. Not sure the blueberries will survive living with me. We will see. Oh and another thing is to adjust water ph. New thing I’ve done.
