Blueberries are excellent plants for the home gardener, providing not only delicious fruit, but plants that have outstanding ornamental value as well. Blueberries are easy to grow, require little care and are seldom bothered by pests. Fruiting occurs from July to October depending on the variety.
Plant blueberries in an area that receives full sun in a well-drained, acidic soil that is high in organic matter.
Blueberries are shallow-rooted, so they require lots of watering to avoid heat stress and to produce the best fruit.
Blueberries are self fertile, however planting two different varieties increases the amount of fruit that each will produce. Most blueberries bloom at about the same time so any two varieties will pollinate each other.
