Planting new blueberry bushes-rookie here!
So I'm a gardening rookie (southern california) but I bought 2 blueberry plants both in 3 gallon pots. 1 sunshine and 1 oneal. They are fairly good sized with blueberries already on them. I've read that theylike acidic soil and that I should use peat moss. The nursery advised me to buy azalea soil so I bought that. So my question is do I mix 1/3 azalea 1/3 peat moss and native soil? And when you "amend" soil are you amending the whole area before you start planting or just the soil you put back in the hole? Also I've read that I should pinch the fruit and flowers off the first year...should I assume that this plant is older than a year since its in a 3 gallon and has blueberries already or should I just go ahead and pinch off? Thank you in advance for any help!
