Christmas for blueberries?
I'm going to plant a bunch of blueberries in my little home garden this winter ('cause I LOVE THEM), and I'm trying to figure out to how to do it more sustainably. I'll have to plant them in raised beds and containers, because our local soil is neutral-alkaline, rather than the acid soil that blueberries are supposed to require.
So, any ideas what I can do or plant to help these blueberries along? What about my neighbor's used Christmas trees (firs, I think)? If I use these for mulch will help keep the soil acid like pine needles would? Other thoughts?
Thanks in advance!
