Planting blueberies in the ground in southern california question
I just planted some blueberries... sharpblue, misty, sunshine, rebel (which I may switch out) and am thinking of getting another sunshine. I also planted some raspberries and blackberries.
For the blueberries I dug out about a foot and a half deep by a foot and a half wide in my solid gray clay soil, and filled it completely with azalea acid mix. I now am beginning to wonder if this is good enough... will the roots hit the clay or will they stay in the hole like a pot? Is it big enough?
I also did a similar thing with the raspberries and blackberries, digging about a 5 foot long by 1 foot wide, by about 1 foot deep hole and filled it with azalea acid mix (the people said it would be okay... our hard water would make it less acidic anyways).
I had the sharpblue and misty for a year already. The sharpblue did okay, the misty did not the best but not bad. Had to move them to get landscaping in.
I just dug the holes so changing it may not be a huge issue if it's worth it...
I'm in orange county, california near the ocean.
