Thank you for your input.
|Elaeocarpus decipiens requires rich, well draining soil for best performance. It will be prone to root rot if planted in heavy, wet soils. If you want to plant a Japanese Blueberry Tree and you know the soil is heavy and wet, why not plant it in a raised berm so you have some control over the soil moisture content? Good luck with your tree!|
