General Plant Care:    Care for your shrubs includes monitoring for pests and diseases, periodically checking soil moisture, and providing fertilizer as needed. In general, plants that have sufficient water and the correct amount of fertilizer tend to not have as many pest and disease problems. Water new plants weekly during the growing season in the first year, and as needed after that.
General Planting Tips:    Choose a site suited to your plant's light, soil, and space needs. Dig a hole twice as wide but no deeper than the container. Remove plant from container and loosen roots slightly. Place the plant in the hole. If using slow-release (coated) fertilizer, you may add it according to package directions at this time. Add soil back to the hole, ensuring the top of the soil from the container is even with the surrounding soil. Water well, and add more soil if needed. Add 2-3 inches of mulch around plant, taking care to keep away from stem or trunk. See our FAQ page for more details on Mulching.
General Fertilizing Tips:    Apply acidic fertilizer according to package directions once in early spring before flowering and again in summer after fruiting. Do not apply lime.
General Pruning suggestions:    Blueberries should have their flowers removed the first year of planting. While it is hard to give up a season of harvest, it will help the plant establish and bear more fruit in years to come! Older plants (5-7 years old) need periodic renewal pruning in late winter or early spring, after buds have formed. Each year, select 2-3 of the thickest, woodiest canes and cut them to the ground. Also remove any weak, crossing, or poor-budding canes at this time. Other canes that have grown too tall to reach can be trimmed down.
