Planting & Care:
Planting: Plant the Tifblue Blueberry in well-draining, acidic soil and full sun. Dig a hole that is twice as large as the plant's root system, and as deep. Set the plant’s root ball into the hole and fill it with soil.
Press the soil down around the plant’s roots to firm and remove all air pockets. Finally, apply a 3-inch layer of mulch around the bush to inhibit unwanted weed growth and keep the soil moist.
To grow your Tifblue Blueberry in a container, plant in a pot that is twice as large as the plant’s root ball. The pot should have adequate drainage holes in the base to allow the water to drain from the soil. Fill the container with three inches of potting soil, place the root ball into the pot, and firm the soil around the plant’s roots.
Watering: Water your Tifblue at least once per week to keep the soil moist, or check the soil about 2 inches down for dryness.
Fertilizing: Fertilize with an acidic fertilizer, and follow the directions on the fertilizer’s label for application ratios.
Pruning: For best fruiting, prune the oldest, lower branches on your Tifblue Blueberry Bush in late winter.
Pollination: Since the Tifblue Blueberry is not self-pollinating, you'll need another Blueberry variety to get fruit.
We recommend getting big, 3 gallon blueberry bushes if they're still available. They take us an extra year to grow, but you'll get tons of fruit, the first year! Perfect for impatient gardeners!
