My blueberries are finally in...
Thank you to everyone for their wonderful advice on containerizing blueberries especially bamboo rabbit for getting me started. Never thought I could grow them here and I am super excited.
I've got a Jewel, Emerald, and a Windsor in 21" wide pots. The Windsor was pretty root bound, ended up slicing off the bottom 2 inches to help loosen up the roots. I did not bare root them as they looked like they arrived in a bark/peat mix I would be making anyways.
I am using a mix of fir bark (1/2" and less) peat, and perlite. Probably more like a 5:2:1 mixture, a little more added peat than the 5:1:1 mix. The middle pot has lighter bark because I ran out of the Greenall Microbark and used some Rexius orchid bark I had leftover from a grittyy mix I made earlier. I've mixed in some Dynamite Organic All Purpose CRF. I did not mix in gypsum since the fertilizer I'm using has calcium. Will sprinkle a little Epsom salt in the top of the mix for the magnesium. I am definitely watering with vinegar although I forgot to add it on my initial watering : )
I'm leaving them partially shaded although do I need to since they are dormant?
Any problems you can see or added advice?
Will keep everyone updated. Thanks again, I love this forum.
