Give Peach Sorbet Blueberries acidic, well-drained soil with a regular schedule of water. Soil pH should be between 4.5 and 5.5.
Test your soil, or plant them in containers with acid-lovers soil mix. Amend with handfuls of peat moss.
Mulch with pine bark or pine straw to add acidity over time. Test your soil regularly to ensure proper acidity levels.
Pro tip: collect neutral pH rainwater to water your Peach Sorbet. Water regularly, especially when the fruit is developing.
Give them at least four hours of direct sunlight a day. In the warmer zones, they like afternoon shade.
Fertilize with an acid-lover formula in springtime. Please follow the directions on the label.
