About Blueberries 

 

Blueberries are members of the Vaccinium family, and are native only to North America. There are many desirable cultivars which are adaptable to a multitude of growing conditions. Blueberries thrive in acidic conditions. Blueberries are delicious eaten fresh or dried, in jams or jellies or desserts. They are an excellent source of dietary fiber, high in Vitamins C, B6 and K as well as many micronutrients and are also a good source of antioxidants and anthocyanins. Blueberries are said to aid in fighting some cancers by inhibiting cancer cell development as well as in fighting inflammation.

Blueberry Care

 

Select a sunny location with good drainage. Water regularly and deeply for the first year, especially during dry periods. Fertilize with an all purpose fertilizer before the plant comes out of dormancy in the spring. Adding mulch annually to reduces weeds and preserves moisture. If needed, use an insecticidal soap during the growing season to control insect pests.

Blueberry Pruning

 

Blueberries need annual pruning in the winter to increase fruit production and encourage new growth. Remove the suckers at ground level and prune to remove dead branches, and any other old wood that has lost its vigor.
