The Q&A Archives: Light Needs of Blueberry

Question: In your current article on growing blueberries, there is no mention made of sunlight demands. I would assume that
you need full sun, or nearly full sun, to grow the varieties mentioned in the article.

Could you please confirm this, or expand? I live on a shady-to-partly sunny property.

Answer: Sorry for the omission - I'll pass your comment on to the editors! You have assumed correctly - blueberries bloom and produce best when given full sun, though they will bear in partly sunny conditions - just not as well.
