Grow blueberry plants and enjoy the luscious fruits of this native American shrub that have been cherished since colonial times. Plant at least two different varieties of blueberry plants for cross pollination to increase yield.
Plant blueberry plants in a sunny to partially shaded area, in a well-drained, very acidic soil, with a pH of 4.2-5.2. Plant at least two different varieties for cross pollination. Set blueberry plants 4-8 feet apart (3 feet apart for hedges).
As fruit ripens, cover blueberry plants with netting to deter birds. Pick fruit promptly to discourage insects.
