Blueberries in Southcentral PA

shel4(z6 PA)March 13, 2009

Just bought 4 small blueberry plants, 2-Bluecrop and 2-Blueray. Any advice for growing them? I realize I can't put them into the ground until April/May(so says the packaging material). Thanks!

BB need acidic soil, pH between 4.5 - 4.8, and good drainage.

Nourse Farms has a good planting guide here

Here is a link that might be useful: BB planting

I dug peat moss and sand into the trench and they have flourished for 20 yrs. I mulch with pine needles each year. The first year the rabbits browsed them pretty well so I enclosed with chicken wire.
