The Q&A Archives: how do i grow healthy blueberry plants?

Question: I bought a set of blueberry plants called Blueray Blueberries off of the internet. I was wondering if I could start them off in pots and transfer them to the ground later. Also, do I do to keep them healthy if I live in Northeastern NC?

Answer: Blueray blueberries are good choices for the northern areas of North Carolina so you chose well. Blueberries need acidic, fast draining soils and you can grow them in containers for a few years before you plant them out in the garden. They need full sunshine and ample moisture. Fill the containers will a half and half mixture of regular potting soil and peat moss to ensure they get the acidity they require. Best wishes with your new blueberries.
