Cultivation of homemade blueberries

Although growing blueberries is really easy, one of the cons that presents this idea is that it is a rather slow process.

It takes about 3 to 4 years to bear fruit , however, this happens when you begin the planting process from scratch.

If you choose to grow with an older shrub, the process will be a little faster.

1. Think about how you are going to grow it and where

Whichever option you choose, you must take into account the space you have. Cranberry and its shrub require a lot of room to grow .

If you have a garden you can opt for a cultivation bed, which is excellent for water to pass under.

However, if you live in a small place, you can do it without any problem in a pot and this will also depend on how you start your process.

If you decided to start the process from the seeds, you must germinate them first in a nursery or, failing that, a plastic container, before being able to transplant it after germinating.

  • When choosing a young shrub everything varies a little, since you will need a larger pot, about 20 liters.
  • After the shrub ripens, it must pass to a 70 or 80 liter capacity so that it has the necessary space.

2. Prepare the soil where you will start planting

You can do it with ingredients like:

  • Cotton Seed Meal
  • Compost made from bark
  • Pine Leaves
  • Oak leaves
  • Peat

3. Choose what you will grow
