Blueberry Bushes


Anonymous added on March 3, 2014 | Answered

I planted 10 blueberry bushes last fall and this is the third season to grow. They were two years old potted when I planted them. My question is, how much fertilizer should I use per plant? I was told by the nursery to use 19-19-19. The bushes are 2 to 3 feet tall.

Blueberries require acidic fertilizer (much like that of azalea plants).
