Help please - we have not had enough rainwater here to keep watering my 3 new blueberry plants; can I use cooled boiled water instead.

You can draw off mains water and let it sit for 48 hours, that will de-chlorinate it and it can then be used on your plants.

A tbsp of vinegar to a gallon of water will acidify it too. I use it every third or fourth time I water my toms in the ground. The soil here is utterly alkaline - the peninsula is mainly limestone - and the water is equally so.
