Blueberry Bushes
Q.

grass clipping used as mulch in blueberries

Zone Sidney, BC, Canada | Leah Pawluk added on May 6, 2018 | Answered

We have been using grass clippings around our blueberries in our home garden and have noticed we are getting a real scale problem. Are the two connected? I am also wondering whether we need to balance the nitrogen for the blueberries?

Not likely caused by the grass clippings.
Treat the plants with Neem Oil.
