How To Care

When planting your Pink Lemonade 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 almost any time of the year.  

This blueberry thrives in full to part sun and well-drained, moist, acidic soil.  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.  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 in spring with a balanced, slow release fertilizer. Blueberries grown in containers will need fertilized 2 to 3 times as often because 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 Pink Lemonade Blueberry is self pollinating so you only need 1 plant to get berries.  However your harvest will increase per plant if you have multiple Pink Lemonade plants or other Rabbiteye varieties.

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 Lemonade is very pest and disease resistant.
