Blueberries

    2 responses

DaddyC starts with ...
I live in the Illawarra, NSW - just south of Sydney (temperate climate)and was wondering what three varieties of blueberries to grow that will optimise fruiting season for me. Soils are clayey-loam, a tad acidic but on a coastal flat with groundwater 400mm down (so I'll have to raise bed slightly). I'll probably chuck in some azaelea mix and/or peat moss and maybe need a windbreak from coastal NE breezes. Any tips on varieites - probably rabbit-eyes from what I've read. Space is not an issue but would potting be a better solution? Many thanks for any replies - DaddyC

I have a sharp and biloxi growing well here in Wollongong. Peatmoss, azaelea mix and worm castings are a good idea. Best planted in the ground if you can amend the soil as suggested. Ensure good draiange too. They do like regular moisture and protection from extreme heat during the summer.

Acidic will work to you advantage of course- give them a go in the ground and if they don't do well- put them in pots instead. Your soil should be good for them- they like the soil to be moist- but still drain well.

Suggest Nelly Kelly or Misty Blue for the climate- as noted above- protect from heat- especially partial to full shade from the east.
