How And When To Fertilize Your Blueberry Plants
Growing blueberries in your garden is easy since they require low maintenance. However, to get your fruit growing and thriving, it's essential to fertilize it at the right times.
Fertilizing blueberries three times a year in the spring, summer, and fall will ensure your fruit receives the nutrients they need and give you delicious blueberries.
Strong roots are essential
to your plant’s entire foundation, so you’ll want to do the first fertilization before or early spring, or before
any new growth appears.
In six weeks, do the second batch of fertilizer so that the blueberries will grow until August, when their harvesting season will have ended.
After the blueberries harvesting season, they need one last fertilization to last them through the winter, ideally four weeks before the first frost.
Blueberries are often grown in acidic soil with a pH between 4.5 and 5.5. If your soil has a slightly higher pH level, add sulfur to help maintain or lower its levels.
