Planting Blueberries

I am following up our 5 easy tips to pick number 1 was to plan ahead to make sure you have the best plan for your garden. Number 4 was to cheat 😉 I picked up Blueberries which I had not planned on 😉 that said they are a great addition to my 2014 Goal of adding more perennials to my garden.

Blueberries are a great addition. I have a North Land and a North Country Blueberry. They are both dwarf varieties which don’t get larger then 1 meter tall. Although both varieties may need an pollinator however each of them will do well alone.

Blueberries prefer a more acidic soil. I am looking for organic ways to do this but I might need to cheat. I am looking for your help. I have planted strawberries in the bed as well. They enjoy acidic soils as well and will make a great under-story to blue berries!
