Blueberries

    3 responses

Madeleine v M starts with ...
Hello there,?
I have looked through your website and not found an answer to my questions.
A coupled of months ago we purchased four blueberry plants and now that I am ready for planting I am confused about where to plant them in the garden. I am well aware of the 5.5 ph requirement but unsure about whether full sun or part-shade is required. My associated question is also: how much sun constitutes full sun. Can you help please? A lady at a local nursery thought that full sun here halfway between Brisbane and the Gold coast is too much, however the few online sources I found talk about full sun.
Thank you for a reply not too far away.

Hi Madeleine v M,

Select the location has 5-6 hours of sun and morning sun is preferable. Cheers.

Hi Madeleine

I am in W.A so not sure if it helps but my blueberries have the morning sun and shaded after lunch and they grow fine they get enough sun during winter and protected from the majority of the heat during summer also worth noting when I have brought blueberries from Bunnings etc. they are in a nursery with filtered sunlight I am guessing they are grown in the same environment as I have burnt them putting straight into full sun all day. (they maybe sun hardened)

I have done a lot of research also on blueberries after killing lots!!! 2 things I can recommend and people feel free to jump on me but its worked here my soil is simply coco peat and perlite that's it and they love blood and bone! I chuck some sulphur every now and again depending on the ph slow release rose fertilizer once a year.

Before I planted them out I did some cuttings/air layering just in case they died I would have replacements bloody expensive plants!

I've got all mine in pots, the eastern side seems to be the best for me. Full sun (no trees in the way) from morning till 1pm.
