How to Use Darrow Blueberry in the Landscape

Darrow produces one of the largest berries available on the market. It won't take more than a handful to boost your breakfast cereal with incredible sweet-tart flavor.

Although Blueberries are self-fertile, you will get a much larger fruit set with another plant or two nearby. Extend your harvest with an early season variety like Duke and a mid-season like Toro.

Add fruiting plants, even in a small space. Container-grown blueberries are just as delicious, and it's a bit easier to manage the required acidic container culture.

Blueberries need acidic soil with a pH between 4.5 and 5.5. If you see Rhododendrons grow wild nearby your home, you'll likely be able to grow them in the ground without trouble.

Otherwise, you'll need to test your soil to understand the pH. Test your soil with a kit or send it to your local Ag Extension office.

You can amend alkaline soil with sulfur and handfuls of peat moss. Use pine bark or pine straw as a mulch. Test your soil regularly to ensure you aren't overdoing it.

One of the hidden sources of alkalinity is tap water. Collect rainwater to use on your Blueberry shrubs, an easy effort that will really pay off in production.

Add a row of Blueberries as a beautiful, informal hedge. You'll get much more fruit, and a lovely spring bloom and outstanding fall color display.

Create a solid low hedge by planting four to six feet apart on center. Measure from the center of one to the center of the next.

#ProPlantTips for Care

New to edible gardening? Check out our blog and watch our YouTube channel for expert information about caring for Blueberry bushes.

Plant Darrow Blueberry in either full sun or partial shade. It requires at least four hours of sunlight a day.

Blueberries require well-drained soil that sheds water quickly after a rain event. Create a raised bed or plant in containers if you need to improve the drainage.

Blueberries have a shallow root system. If you plant in large, exterior containers, select a pot that is wider than deep and add extra drainage holes.

Please don't use saucers under outdoor containers. Elevate the container with bricks, pot feet, or a wheeled caddy underneath.

Plant in an acid loving plant soil mix amended with a few handfuls of pathway bark. Top-dress with pine straw or bark mulch.

Prune to correct shape in late winter. In early spring, fertilize with a formula for acid-loving plants according to the directions on the label.

Apply a moderate amount of water on a regular basis. We recommend that you use a rain barrel to catch and store neutral pH rainwater.
