|New Blueberry Plants|
They were bigger than I expected for $5.00 each. They are a bit ragged, with some sunburn on the leaves, but they look healthy otherwise. I won't do a real pruning until they are dormant, but I did clean them up a bit, cutting off broken and really straggly stems. I am controlling myself from transplanting until they are dormant too! Eventually I will put them in half wine barrel planters, but this year I will get pots similar to what they are in but a size or two larger. They have a fairly shallow root room need, so are suitable for planters, even Bluecrop, which matures to 4' to 6' tall.
I sprinkled some acid-lovers plant food on the soil and watered it in. That's the only thing to be concerned about with blueberries, the soil. Acid lovers, needing a pH of about 4.5 to 5. NOT what my raised beds are, since veggies prefer around 7. After spending hours online, reading and watching videos on blueberry care, I think I can do right by them.
