When you set out to grow Blueberries, you'll first want to get your soil tested. They need well-drained, acidic soil.
Many areas in the Southeast, Northwest and Northeast United States can easily grow bumper crops in the ground. If you live with alkaline soil, you'll want to consider container culture.
It's far easier to maintain their pH requirements in a closed environment, after all. Make sure your container has good drainage, and elevate it with bricks or clay pot feet.
Ensure your growing site receives at least four hours of direct sunlight a day, favoring the morning sun. In cooler climates, Mini Blues will easily tolerate full sun.
Blueberries like a consistent schedule of moderate water. Give them regular water during fruit production.
Try a rain barrel to collect neutral pH rainwater. Mulch with pine straw or pine bark to reduce surface evaporation.
Prune in early spring to remove a few of the thickest stems. Fertilize at the same time with a formula for acid-loving plants, following application rates on the label.
