Acid loving plant, I use azalea potting mix,  azalea slow release fertiliser and pine bark. I have them planted  in large pots with 2 other varieties with them as cross pollination will produce more fruit significantly.

I love blueberries and it's a small knife in the heart to have to pull the flowers off this year. Planted near a pine tree for that extra acidic touch.
