Caring for Pink Icing Blueberry

The Pink Icing Blueberry is self pollinating.

Planting

When planting your Pink Icing Blueberry be sure to choose the right location and conditions for your new plant to thrive. Spring and fall are ideal times to plant. However, if you avoid extreme temperatures you can plant your blueberry shrub almost any time of the year.

This blueberry thrives in full to part sun and well-drained, moist, acidic soil.

To improve drainage in something like a heavy clay soil, add compost and be sure to loosen up the soil well before planting.

Watering

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 inches of mulch is highly recommended for Blueberry bushes. Mulching helps to maintain soil moisture and gives added protection during extreme temperatures.

Fertilizing

If you have alkaline soil, be sure to amend your soil. To acidify your soil amend with compost, elemental sulfur, or use fertilizers specific for acid loving plants.

Fertilize in spring with a balanced, slow release fertilizer. Blueberries grown in containers will need fertilized about 2 to 3 times as often as blueberries grown in the ground.

Maintenance

Prune your Blueberries in late winter to remove any dead, dying, or crowded branches and to maintain size. 

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 is birds. You can put up bird netting to protect your crop. If positioned properly, this is an extremely effective deterrent. The Pink Icing is very pest and disease resistant.

Landscape ideas

This colorful dwarf blueberry is perfect for container gardening or utilizing in the landscape. Use as a border along a pathway or as a small hedge. Blueberries look great in plant beds and ornamental gardens. The Pink Icing is even perfect for mass plantings to add extra color and texture to your landscape. Choose other acid loving plants like azaleas, camellias, and evergreens to complement your Pink Icing Blueberries.
