There are many ways in which we can grow blueberries, whether it is in the yard, in a large container, or even in a flower garden. There is no doubt that blueberries are attractive perennial plants that will look lovely in your flower garden or in larger containers if you do not have enough space in your garden for them if you have a small garden.

Planting blueberries in October Recently, we have seen an increase in the number of highbush blueberries (Vaccinium corymbosum), also known as the American blueberry, as one of the most common blueberry varieties in our region.

The cultivation of blueberries can also be done in agro-textile pots or bags as well. It is recommended that you use seedlings of blueberry bushes that are between two and three years old when you are planning to plant it.

It is best to plant them in the middle of October. Planting is also possible between the middle of March and the middle of April if the possibility of frost has passed.


During planting of blueberries, it is recommended to apply a starter fertilizer containing nitrogen, phosphorus, and calcium to the soil so that the plants can root better.

An important part of the blueberry's nutrition comes from organic matter. As an alternative, you can make your own biostimulators by combining the ingredients listed below. A seedling's root is an important thing to keep in mind when planting it, as it is important to pay attention to it.

It is a good idea to loosen the lower part of the root of the plant as soon as you remove it from the pot in which it was grown so that it will continue to grow in all directions even after you transplant it. A plant can die if the roots continue to develop in a circular manner, as this can lead to poor growth and even death of the plant.

The best soil pH for blueberries is between 4.2 and 4.8, because blueberries prefer more acidic soil. Several varieties of blueberries produced good yields when grown in soil with a pH value of 4.7, which suggests that it might be a better choice to plant blueberries in bags or pots made of agrotextiles, because they make it easier to control the acidity of the soil where they are planted.
