Here is what my blueberry farmer friend told me.
First, check out your state/county agriculture extention service. He said the variety of plant is different for different parts of the country. You didn't say where you are located.
He used Auburn, AL, Univ. of GA and Ohio extentions for info.
Next, he said depth and spacing depend on whether you plant to farm or in your yard. For farming, he spaced his plants 5 ft. apart. In your yard double this or more to mow around them. For depth, plant them exactly the same as in the bucket the plant came in. Before putting the plant in the hole, mix the soil with old sawdust or peat moss to reduce the ph. He said blueberries don't need a lot of fertlizer, but lots of water. Hope this helps.

Please give me advise as to when should blue berry vines be planted! In north Alabama, My daughter bought me three beautiful vines and I have no idea as to when? Should I wait until aftr the last frost or any time? Thank you in advance.

Have just bought some blueberry bushes. Have different kinds to polinate. Would like to know what to use to plant the bushes, and how far apart. Also about sunlight and ground spaces. Thank You

I own three acers of wet lands in NJ. On that land there are about 100 blueberry bushes 6ft or better.What would I need to do if I wanted to have a small farm and still comply with the EPA?

Tried a low bush in my garden but didn't survive. Blueberries are fussy and need soil of a specific acidity.

Depends...

Are you talking real wild blueberrys, or the store bought, bigger than a marble, hybridized, huckleberry crossed, no flavour, cardboard consistancy things that happen to be blue?

The ones that you see in stores and at u-pick places are laid out in neat rows about a foot apart. They will grow up and together and make rows that look like a hedge and can get waist high or taller.

Wild ones grow haphazardly and cover the ground almost to knee height in huge patches usually with a southwest exposure.

I know one patch in the Northeast Kingdom that is easily 5 acres. Only paths through it are from the deer and the bears...

Hi Harry,
I personally know nothing about blueberries, but I have a friend who raises them and has a u-pick-um farm. I will ask him and let you know.
Meanwhile, search on the internet for your local state/county agriculture cooperative extention service. They have a world of info. Good luck.
