Blueberries are one of my favorite fruits. The Blueberry Council website shows a cup is only 80 calories, low sodium, with manganese and vitamins C and K. Plus, they are full of fiber. Here are three tips to help you grow your own blueberry bushes:
- Choose blueberry bushes that are hardy for where you live. Some varieties are specifically designed for colder climates.
- Blueberry bushes need acidic soil. The ph should be between 4 and 5. You can lower soil ph by amending with sulphur, but that takes time. A quicker fix is to use sphagnum peat.
- Blueberry bushes need a lot of sun
Talk to your local garden center about growing blueberries where you live.
