Acidic Soil For Blueberries
Blueberries like acidic conditions with lower rates of acid fertilizer, we’ve taken the guesswork out when we developed this blend to meet those requirements. There’s no need to buy a blueberry soil pH test kit when using our soil for blueberries. We test our blueberry soil mix to make sure it is not alkaline and contains the perfect blueberry soil PH.
How To Prepare Soil For Blueberries
It’s a good idea to prepare your soil before planting your blueberry bush to promote healthy growth and encourage high yield fruit production. This is accomplished by loosening up the soil to make space for the blueberry bush’s roots to spread and expand. Dig a hole the depth of your blueberry bush and twice as wide. It would also help to remove any nearby weeds, rocks, tree stumps & roots, grasses, and anything else that would get in the way of your growing blueberry bush’s roots.
You can also use a digital soil meter to gather information about the soil like nutrient content, mineral levels, and acidity. This will let you know what to add to the soil before planting.
Best Potting Soil For Blueberries
Most blueberry varieties will grow well in containers. If you’re planting your blueberry bush in a container or pot, the most important thing is to ensure that the soil is loamy and contains the organic matter and nutrients your blueberry plant will need to grow.
It’s also necessary to check that the potting soil for blueberries you’ll be using is acidic enough with a PH somewhere between 4.3 to 5.5. Our blueberry potting soil mix has the perfect amount of acidity, which takes all the measuring and guesswork out, making you ready to plant your blueberry bush!
Amending Soil For Blueberries
Amending the soil is a critical step in creating a great environment for blueberry bushes to grow and thrive. Our blueberry soil mix is one of the best soil amendments for blueberries and will help provide your blueberry bushes with the best growing conditions. You can also incorporate peat moss to help ensure that your soil is well-draining with the correct pH level. It is a good idea to mulch your blueberry bushes with organic matter such as mulch or pine needles to retain as much moisture as possible.
After digging your plating hole, mix your dug up soil with our soil mix for blueberries before backfilling around the root ball of your blueberry bush.
Do Blueberry Bushes Like Wet Soil?
While blueberry bushes do prefer moisture for healthy growth and fruit production, too much moisture can cause wet soil and roots, which blueberries do not prefer. Wet soil can create water stress for blueberry bushes, which causes its leaves and berries to shrivel up and die. Wet soil can also cause root rot, which is a bacterial or fungal infection that damages the blueberry bush’s roots and can kill the plant if left untreated.

Ask a question
My babies are about to get rained on. I love them.
I bought three blueberry bushes and this soil amendment. The amendment is wonderful and my babies are safe and planted and being cared for. My only suggestion for improvement is to not pack heavy bags of things in on top of the plants. One of the bushes was crushed down to a nub because of it. I named it "sweet baby". He shall persevere, however, for the benefit of future plants, I would suggest taping the heavy "additional bags" underneath the bushes so the delicate branches don't get battered about. Otherwise, excellent products all 'round. Thanks to you all for my new garden members. I will be back. I appreciate your good work.
Love this stuff
Thanks for the great soil
Rich, blueberry, potting soil
I waited to put my blueberry plants in the ground until I got the bags of soil!! so glad I did. We have terrible Clay here where we live in Texas and I haven’t had much luck with blueberry plants in the past so it seems like this will definitely make a difference.
