Grow blueberries in your own garden
Find appropriate place
The bushes need good quality soil and a lot of sun which is necessary for the photosynthesis process. If you live in a flat with a balcony, all you need is an appropriate container.
Remember that the bushes will grow. Provide enough space, especially between them.
The best time to plant them is autumn or spring. It is not a complicated process. They bushes prefer shallow rooting and permanent watering. The optimal soil acidity is 5.0 pH
To get the best possible yield use sawdust, or pine bark as mulching. It helps to maintain appropriate soil humidity and prevents weed growth.
First of all dead branches must be removed. It is also important to trim the bushes on regular basis to get rid of them most quickly growing twigs. This is how we can ensure optimum growth and excessive fruiting.
Use organic fertilisers not to hurt the bushes. They are eco-friendly and non-toxic.
Thanks to these hints your bushes will be healthy and will fruit for 4 – 5 years.
