The Q&A Archives: Transplant

Question: I am transplanting a blueberry bush From my old house to my new house, what is the best way to do that?

Answer: The best time to plant blueberries is during their dormant season (Nov - Feb), but it's still early enough in the season for you to successfully transplant, if you do it within the next few weeks. Blueberries thrive in acidic soil (5.4), which is relatively common here in western Washington because of our high rainfall. However, if your soil test indicates a higher pH you may want to amend your soil with some peat moss at planting time.

Blueberry roots are not fibrous and hairy like the roots of many other plants so they don't compete well with other plants. Be sure to give them space when you plant them. Place your blueberry where it will get at least a half-day of sunshine and be sure to water deeply once each week during the growing season.

Enjoy the fruits of your labors!
