Blueberries need well-drained, rich, acid soil. Plant with an acid-type compost such as one formulated for Azaleas/ Camellias/Rhododendrons mixed with your native soil. Amend with an acid fertilizer, sulfur or aluminum sulfate according to label instructions. Never use animal manures with acid plants. Blueberries need full sun, but afternoon shade in very hot (over 100°) climates. Keep the soil moist but not water-logged during the growing season. Mulch around plants to protect shallow roots from drying out. Low chill, Southern Highbush varieties are particularly suited for heat tolerance and soil adaptability. Plant at least two varieties that bloom at the same time for cross pollination and better yield.
