"You ought to have seen what I saw on my way
To the village, through Mortenson's pasture to-day:
Blueberries as big as the end of your thumb,
Real sky-blue, and heavy, and ready to drum
In the cavernous pail of the first one to come! ~ Robert Frost
 Growing blueberries

Growing blueberries in your backyard!
  • Blueberry plants are shallow rooted and require acid soils, soils that hold moisture well and well-drained soil. Soil can be improved by adding a source of organic matter.
  • Blueberry bushes should be planted in full sunlight for maximum fruit production. 
  • Mature blueberry bushes require one to two inches of water each week for best growth and productivity.
  • Pruning is the most important aspect of blueberry culture. Annual pruning is necessary to invigorate the bushes, encourage annual fruit production.
