Moist but free draining acidic soil is the kind of soil which is needed for a blueberry bush (Vacciniumspp).

Specifically, a soil analysis test has to place the soil in the pH levels below the neutral range of 6.5 to 7.0. A way of ascertaining the soil pH without such a test is looking for the areas where trees such as the acidic soil-loving white pines (Pinus strobus) fluorish. If the soil pH is not acidic or if lime needs to be added for the well-being of other plants, then the blueberry bush can be started out in a container with ericaceous compost.
