Re-site blueberries, fertilization?

beeman_gardener(5)May 7, 2013

I have now completed the re-site of my blueberry patch, taking the advice offered on a previous post I made.
I have a question. I would like to fertilize, but am scared of screwing up the new bushes.
I have stock of the following
Bonemeal, bloodmeal, kelp meal, urea.
Could someone help me with a recipe? Preferably a ratio of how much for each bush.
Thanks in advance.

I am thinking that things like bonemeal would raise your ph...not a good thing for bb's. Since they are newly re-planted...I would either wait, or use a very dilute solution.

Hi beeman,
Fireduck is right about the Bonemeal.The Bloodmeal and Urea are straight Nitrogen at about 13 and over 40.
I'd probably use the Bloodmeal with a little Kelp.
I'm not sure how big your plants are,as the amount to use is relative to their size. Brady

Wow, what wimpy answers! I would have amended soil with the meals. Amount would be based on what the manufacturer recommended. On Urea. you need about 0.4 oz per gallon of water. Not 4! Point 4 oz. Less than 1/2 oz.
The meals are organic slow acting, so hard to harm berries. The Urea is strong and easy to hurt the berries.
