Natural Organic Blueberry Fertilizer Helps Plants Thrive
Whether you have lowbush, highbush or rabbiteye plants, a natural organic blueberry fertilizer can promote a wonderful harvest for one of the few cultivated native fruits of North America.
Due to the fact that blueberries need specific growing conditions to flourish, make sure you put them in an appropriate location. An ideal soil would be loose, sandy and moist, yet well-draining. (One-half soil and one-half dampened peat moss are a good base.)
Ideal pH for Blueberries to Grow
An appropriate pH would be between 4.5 and 5.2. You can easily find out your pH by doing soil testing. You can have a professional company test your soil or you can do it yourself with a soil testing kit. Please feel free to contact me and I can help you find a soil testing company or recommend a soil testing kit.
Got Soil...Now Plant
First, make sure you pick the appropriate blueberry bush for your climate. For a new planting, band (water in the hole) with a mixture of 3 oz. of natural organic fertilizer 4-3-3 and 4 oz. natural liquid bonemeal 0-12-0 per gallon of water. (Should be ample for 2-3 blueberry bushes.) Water the bushes with the same solution after planting.
NOTE: Since blueberry bushes typically take a few years to truly start producing juicy fruit, it would be ideal to start with a two or three year old bush.
Caring for Your Sweet, Luscious Blueberries
Apply 2 oz. natural organic fertilizer 4-3-3 in one gallon of water on 100 sq. ft. in early spring when buds swell on existent plantings. To help retain moisture, add a mulch cover (pine needles or fine saw dust work best). Just apply the mixture on the mulch around plants. Repeat every few weeks until fruit set.
Apply a foliar (leaf) feeding with natural organic fertilizer 4-3-3 mixture in late summer after harvest of your delicious blueberries. ENJOY!
