Blueberries can be a challenge in our region’s heavy clay soils, though these soils are generally on the acidic side which blueberries need. They will thrive with good site preparation and continued mulching; naturally acidic pine bark or pine needles are best, but hardwood chips/bark and sawdust will do. Ideally, plant in slightly raised beds and amend the soil with generous peat moss, pine bark and alfalfa meal (or other nitrogen source); finishing with a good thick layer of pine bark mulch or pine needles. Apart from their pickiness regarding soil conditions, blueberries are one of the best choices for practical edible landscaping; once established, they are a beautiful low maintenance bush with good fall color. You may be fighting the birds for them, but if you plant them in front of a window you can at least think of them as a pretty bird feeder 🙂 Bird netting is an effective deterrent but you may still have chipmunks steal your fruit by scooting under the nets. Our blueberries need at least 2 varieties for pollination.
