New here. A few questions.
I'm pretty new to gardening, this will be my 2nd year. I just bought 3 blueberry plants from lowe's yesterday & got them planted in my container garden.
I read that these varieties are "northern high bush". I thought we need "southern high bush" here? Or maybe I am mistaken? This is my 1st time growing blueberries.
I'm wondering now if I should have planted them this early? I figured since lowe's had them outside, then they could be planted now.
And I'm also wondering if my containers are large enough.
I planted all 3 blueberry plants in an 8' long x 2' wide x 11" deep raised bed that is 1 foot off the ground so it's considered a container. I would have preferred to only plant 2 of them in a bed, but I don't have room right now for the 3rd one.
They are filled a few inches from the top with:
1.5 bags of 3 cu.ft. Peat Moss
2 bags of 40 lb. top soil.
2 bags of 40 lb. compost & manure mix.
I read peat moss makes it acidic which is good for blueberries but is it enough?
Thanks for any help in advance!
