How To Care

When planting your Bluecrop Blueberry be sure to choose the right location and conditions for your new plant to thrive. Spring and fall are ideal times to plant.

Blueberry shrubs thrive in full sun and well-drained, moist, acidic soil. Blueberries grow best in a pH of 4.5 to 5.5. If you have alkaline soil, be sure to amend your soil. To acidify your soil, amend with compost, elemental sulfur. Mulching with pine straw or pine bark will help over time as they begin to break down, but are not an immediate solution. To improve drainage in something like a heavy clay soil, add compost and be sure to loosen up the soil well before planting. Water deeply when planting and 2-3 times weekly for 3 months while your Blueberry plant is establishing. During the growing and fruiting seasons, a blueberry will do best if the soil is kept moist. Adding a layer of 2 to 3 inches of mulch is highly recommended for Blueberry bushes. Mulching helps to maintain soil moisture and gives added protection during extreme temperatures. Fertilize when planting and in spring with our balanced, slow release fertilizer. Blueberries grown in containers will need fertilized 3 or 4 times per year during the growing season as nutrients leech out of the pot when you water. Prune your Blueberries in late winter to remove any dead, dying, or crowded branches and to maintain size. The Bluecrop Highbush blueberry bush does not require a pollinator to produce fruit. However planting with other Northern Highbush varieties like Blueray or Jersey will increase yields through cross-pollination.

The best way to prevent disease and pests is by providing the appropriate care for your plants. Proper location choice, watering, and fertilization are the keys to your success. The biggest pests of blueberries are birds. You can put up bird netting to protect your crop. If positioned properly, this is an extremely effective deterrent. Most insect pests feed on the leaves of blueberries. You can treat most of these pests naturally with horticultural oil, neem oil, or insecticidal soap. Blueberry Bushes can occasionally encounter fungal issues. Generally, treating after infection isn't extremely effective, so if you have problems yearly treat in early spring with fungicides to prevent infection. Neem Oil is an organic method of treating and preventing some fungal diseases and pests. The entire shrub must be coated in order for this method to be effective.

Everything is always perfect

I’ve now received 5 separate orders. Everything is always the best. Beautiful range of healthy plants, reasonable prices, well packaged and prompt deliveries. The most happy surprise (of many) was when I opened my blueberry plants the other day and they were loaded with berries. Couldn’t believe it. I found the company by chance on internet about a month or so ago and now I’m only buying from them (except for native Colorado plants which are different category). You can’t go wrong with this company! They’re excellent.
