Position – Full sun or semi-shade – especially in the morning.
Size – Approximate Height 1.5m Width 1m.
Soil – Acidic. Ph between 4.2 and 5 (VERY important)
Our farmer has taken many years of research and trials to perfect the soil mixture for maximum harvest.
Acid compost is the base soil, and Lithuanian Sphagnum Peat Moss is the minimum soil requirement. Berry mix Volcanic Rock Dust and Pine Bark Mulch.
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 receive water.
Place acid compost into the pot/hole and then add soaked peat moss, berry mix and volcanic rock dust to the top section and mix well. 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.

Blueberries are salt and nitrate sensitive. Nitrates and chlorides should be avoided in fertiliser blends for blueberry plants.
Blueberry plants DO NOT like any manure or harsh chemical fertiliser. If you have a worm farm REFRAIN from using the fertiliser for Blueberry plants
