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?

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.
