When I found out that blueberries were choke full of antioxidants they immediately shot up to the top of the list of favorite berries. It turns out that it is pretty easy to grow blueberries in your garden. The trick is determining which variety grows best in your area.

The good news is that they have developed many different varieties for almost every area, so you should be able to find one that works for you. Even if you do not have a backyard garden, they have varieties that do well in containers too. The good news is  that most garden pests wont bother your blueberry plants, however watch out for rabbits, elk and deer.

Here’s What You’ll Need:

  • Blueberry Bushes
  • Peat Moss
  • Acidic Fertilizer
  • Gardening tools
  • Drip Irrigation (Optional)
  • Fence (Optional)

Clear a sunny area with well drained soil about 2 feet in diameter, and dig about a foot deep. Remove at least one third of the soil, and mix this with moistened peat moss. You’ll need about one cubic bale of peat moss for every 5 blueberry plants. If you want individual bushes then space your plants six feet apart, to create a hedge they three feet separation is all you need.

Blueberries love acidic soil, to achieve this you will have to add acidic fertilizer at least three times each season. Once at planting, then when the flowers show up and lastly when the fruit begins to develop. Your first season expect only a few berries, but this will increase every new season. Don’t forget to keep your plants well watered, they need a lot of water in order to produce more fruit.
