- Blueberries are a widely distributed and widespread group of perennial flowering plants with blue or purple berries.
- They are classified in the section Cyanococcus within the genus Vaccinium.
- Vaccinium also includes cranberries, bilberries, huckleberries, and Madeira blueberries.
- Blueberries require the soil to have a pH between 4.3 to 5.5 pH.
- This is unique because most fruit and vegetable plants do best in a relatively neutral pH soil between about 6.5-7.5.
- Growing blueberries between 6.5-7.5 would cause them to have slow, weak growth, yellowish leaves, and little to no fruit.
- Ammonium sulfate is the most commonly recommended blueberry fertilizer for ensuring the pH of the soil remains acidic.
- Typically, 2 to 4 ounces per bush per year is adequate to maintain an established pH between 4.5 and 5.1.
- You can also try the recommended Fertilizer for fruits below.
- Full sun of at least six to eight hours of sunlight.
- It requires at least one inch of water per week (65 gals./100 sq. ft.).
- You must supplement rainfall when necessary.
- Overhead (sprinkler) irrigation can be used on blueberries, but trickle or drip irrigation is preferred because it conserves moisture and does not wet the foliage.
