OK got my low chill blueberries now to plant

captaininsanoJanuary 28, 2014

Today I received a few varieties of low chill blueberries that I ordered online, they are very small, I guess they would be what are called liners. I prepared the containers I intend to use a couple days ago, with a mix of peat, potting soil, pine bark and perlite I am using 15 gallon containers, my question is, do to the size of the plants is it better to pot them up in smaller pots and then graduate up, or just plant them in the 15 gallon containers.

With most plants it is best to up pot gradually in size but with BB and imho they benefit from the larger container right off the bat so I would have no qualms putting them straight in to the 15's.

I agree. The larger size will hold the extra moisture
they need to thrive. I planted some liners last
July in 5 gallon buckets and you would not
believe how big they are now!

Larger pot equals larger plant. This was a liner 8 months ago.
