Growing Blueberries in High Desert??
Has anyone done this? I found some potted blueberries at one of the big boxes which were abt. 33" high & had berries on them. Couldn't resist at what seemed a low price of less than $7.00/bush, so now have 4 different varieties of Southern Highbush blueberries, Jubilee, Misty, O'Neal, and South Moon.
Would you plant them in half a day (or a full day) of shade instead of full sun?
What other differences in cultivation might be needed to grow them successfully in the High Desert. We get enough chill hours here at 2,500' elevation, but the summer heat and dryness might be a challenge for them.
I plan to keep them in pots in order to provide them with an acid soil. Could any of you recommend a soil mix that has worked for you?
Thank you for any advice you can give me!
