Help with (unplanned) Blueberries
A friend of mine ordered some blueberry plants online, and has more than he has room to grow. He's offered me about a dozen for free, and I'd love to take them. They're a mix of bluecrop and blueray IIRC.
He said that they need some pretty acidic soil, which a brief read here seems to confirm. Our vegetable garden regularly tests between 6.5-7, so I don't think they'll do well if I just chuck them into the dirt.
Does anyone have a recommendation for quickly dropping the ph of my soil to give these things a chance? Alternatively, I suppose I could try to grow them in pots or 5-gal buckets for this year and plant them into the ground in the fall. If we go the potted route, I'll still need both a way to get decent soil for the pots as well as reliably drop the ph of my native soil over the summer.
Please offer any advice - we're not set on organic processes or materials.
Thanks in advance.
