Blueberry Rescue

Allow me to introduce to you my rescued blueberry plant

A blueberry baby I saved from Grocery Outlet

 

I found him at my local Grocery Outlet- on sale and looking kind of pitiful. I thought I would take him home and give him the chance he deserved. And he has already started to grow beautifully. I have even seen a few blossoms!

I have been adding an acidic soil amendment- blueberries do like their soil acidic (we are talking around a 4-5 pH). I have planted him next to a cluster of perennials and am hoping that the plants will all get along- despite their differing opinions on ideal soil pH.

Has anyone had any success with blueberry plants? Any tips or advice that has worked for you?

  1. Good for you! I, too, at times, feel the need to rescue sad-looking plants. I have several blueberry plants, but I’m still learning myself. You have the right idea about their love of acidic soil. When I planted mine, I amended the soil with peat moss. So far they’ve been growing well. My only problem is the thieving birds! 🙂
