Alright lets talk about the location of the plant. The plant should be in a good full sun area. If you particularly know that you have acidic soil. Blueberry plants like real acid soil so it doesn't have to be in a area where you been gardening or where you know the soil is real rich. These blueberry bushes in the wild grow on sides of hills on very, very poor soil. So they lice acidic. Acidic very highly acidic soil and also this is very important. Now this bush is small in about ten or twelve years when your really picking up a lot of blueberries off these bushes. These bushes will be probably seven, eight, nine, ten feet tall. So its important that you give some space in between the bushes. So what we have done is you can count it off and I have got one, two, three, four, five, six, seven feet. So we like to give seven to eight feet between bushes. That way when they grow up they will touching but you will be able to keep the weeds and all the things that want to grow up between these blueberry bushes out of the way. Theres is also its important that if you are going to have several rows of blueberry bushes that you put the bushes at least ten feet apart and thats so that you can mow in between them and keep everything nice and clean. So that it doesn't become a blueberry mess where you cant even get around the bushes to work them.
