Blueberries

Zone McDonald, Tn 37353 | Anonymous added on September 21, 2019 | Answered

What kind of dirt should I put around my bushes, and can I put manure on them and when? I have a 7ft. blueberry bush and it gives a lot of berries a year. But doesn't have any good dirt at the base of the plant. My son has been putting pineneedles on it, is that good too. How about nitrogen, how much should I put on it and when ? Thanks so much Carolyn

    Pine needles are good organic mulch that will help the soil acidity. Organic fertilizers such as blood meal or fish meal are recommended to provide nitrogen. Bone meal and powdered seaweed can provide potassium and phosphorus.
