Blueberry Bog Garden
I have designed a blueberry and cranberry bog garden in my half acre Permaculture demonstration site. It is located in the lowest part of our garden, adjacent to our annual vegetable beds and nursery. The location recieves about half sun and is on a total of 10 acres in a second growth evergreen forest.
I have collected a load of 'forest topsoil' to till into the bog garden. This topsoil is acidic and rich in hummus. I am not sure if this is what I want to use, but I know that blueberries like acidic soils.
What would be best to ammend a silty loam that recieves a good deal of Pacific Northwest rains in the winter? How will I create this bog garden to suit the blueberries and cranberries? How will I hold water and create acidity?
Hope y'all can help.
