Most of our blueberry plants are 2 year old bushes. Here is how to take care of them:

PREPARATION OF THE BLUEBERRY STAND:

It should be sunny or semi-shaded, permeable moist soil, acidic, PH 3.5-4.8, sandy with plenty of humus. To properly prepare the stand dig a hole with a diameter of 80 cm. and a depth of 40cm. Fill the hole with prepared acidic peat (about 50 liters), mixed with sand or forest soil. You can add the bark of conifer or composted sawdust.

CARE:

Highbush blueberry is an environment-friendly plant that can be successfully cultivated without the use of chemicals. However, in case you experience aphid infestation you will need to either apply spray treatment or eliminate the insects mechanically. Irrigation is an important factor in running a successful plantation. Each plant should receive 10 to 20 liters of water per week. Blueberry plantation takes time and patience.

FERTILIZATION:

The easiest approach is to use dedicated blueberry fertilizer found in gardening shops. You can also apply slow release fertilizers such as Plantacote or Osmocote. If the bush growth is weak, the leaves are small and light colored apply a solution of ammonium sulfate at a dose of 1 level tablespoon of fertilizer for 8-10 liters of water every 10 days from the beginning of May to the end of June. Watering with a solution of ammonium sulfate at doses as described above is also recommended for the young plants. Well taken care of blueberry bushes will give you bountiful harvest.
