Blueberry Early Season start to blossom in August and the blueberries will ripen over a period of about 6 weeks
We have a few Early season Blueberry plants specifically to grow in the heat and humidity of Durban.
We have Blueberry plants for all climates in SA
Acidic. Ph between 4.2 and 5 (VERY important) Acid Compost and Berry Mix are not sufficient to reduce the pH of the soil for Blueberry and Cranberry Plants.
A Kit consists of:
1 Blueberry Plant Early Season
Lithuanian Spaghnum Peat Moss
Volcanic Rock Dust
Pine Bark Mulch
The only other soil required is a bag of Acid Compost per plant. Too large to courier
The Berry Mix or Acid Compost on their own is fine for Raspberry Plants, Blackberry Plants, Tayberry and Elderberry Plants as they require slightly acidic soil.
Preparation of the soil for your Early Season Blueberry Plant
Can be container grown in a 40L or larger pot. Soil preparation is the same for both pot and garden planting.
The Peat Moss must be soaked in water for at least 24 hours before planting, as it absorbs a lot of water initially and your plant roots will not be watered
Place acid compost mixed with potting soil for container growing or with any other soil in the ground.
Add soaked peat moss, berry mix and volcanic rock dust and mix in to the top section of the soil.
Gently place the plant (try not to disturb the roots) in the soil mixture and cover the roots (not the stem) with Pine Bark Mulch.
