I live in central Ma. When is best time to plant newly purchased blueberry bushes that are in nursery containers? They have flowers on them. Do I wait until blueberries come in or plant them now? Thank you. jojo
I would plant them now. You may lose some berries, but it will be better for the long term health of the plant. This article will help you to keep it out of transplant shock:
What should the pH balance, or acid level, be for growing blueberries?
A soil pH of 4.5 to 5.5 is adequate for growing blueberry plants.
We planted blueberries this spring. Three different varieties, early, mid and late. A lot of blooms and berries are now forming, but the leaves on two of the plants are turning brown and shriveling up, as though they are very dry. What could be causing this and what might the remedy be?
It could be due to the pH of your soil. Blueberries like low soil pH; otherwise, the roots become blocked and the plant cannot take in any moisture or nutrients and will quietly wither and die.

Do you need two blueberry bushes to get blueberries?
Generally, you want at least one plant of 2 different varieties for best pollination. It's not absolutely necessary though, if you'll be happy with a handful or two of berries. And there are some varieties that do well without another plant nearby.
I got a blueberry bush. I will take care of it in my home. Can you tell me how I start care for these plants?

The blueberries on my bushes are not sweet this year. What's wrong?
Fruits tend not to be sweet if there is not enough nutrients in the soil. Fertilize the plant and also have the soil tested for specific deficiencies.
I would like to know what I should feed my blueberry plants. Should I buy Eracraceous feed or use a normal feed?
Blueberries require acidic fertilizer (much like that of azalea plants). This article will help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/fruits/blueberries/blueberry-fertilizer.htm
