How to grow a lot of blueberries in your garden?
Choose the ideal location
Like any plant that respects itself, the location is essential because it offers sunshine and fertility of the soil that allow the plant to flourish. Thus, a shrub of blueberries needs sun so that the phenomenon of photosynthesis, necessary for the growth of plants, is optimal.
Give enough space
Blueberry shrubs also need a lot of space to grow and their roots to grow. So, if you plant several shrubs side by side, separate them about 6 to 9 feet apart.
Respect the planting process
In fact, the ideal time to plant blueberry shrubs is in fall to promote rooting. Thus, the harvest will be ready in July or August. Add more soil at the time of planting and make sure to choose acidic soil and water the shrubs daily as they need a lot of water.
Since blueberry shrubs do not necessarily have deep roots, they need more nutrients. So, in order for the plant to be drained, consider mulching, that is, a technique of covering the soil with organic materials or minerals to nourish and protect the plant.
In a natural way, trees grow steadily throughout the year. But, it happens that their branches become bulky, annoying, even dangerous. This is why we must prune, that is to say, cut certain branches, so that the shrub can flourish fully and offer multiple blueberries.
Particularly important growth stages are fertilization. This involves using organic fertilizers such as manure to optimize the feeding conditions of the crop plants. In addition, organic fertilizer in the spring will greatly improve the harvest of blueberries.
