What special care does it take to grow blueberries?
I have two blueberry plants. When I went to the green house to buy
them, they told me that I would need 2 blueberry plants so they
could cross pollinate each other and would be able to produce
blueberries. I planted them close together, the first year they did
not produce a lot of blueberries, but that is normal, but each year
that passes by they produce more and more blueberries. In the fall
time, you need to let the leaves that fall near them to stay near
the plant, to protect them from the winter weather. In the spring
after the last hard frost, you need to remove the leaves from
around them. Now to keep birds from eating your blueberries, the
lady that worked at the green house said that I should place some
old CD's in the ground near the plants. The birds can't stand the
bright light that is given off by the CD's. I have never had any
birds eat my blueberries.
you also need to watch the pH, blueberrys need a very acid
