I’ve just purchased four ‘blueberry’ plants all of differing varieties which will help in their cross pollination, which in turn will hopefully increase their fruit yield when they become mature. My garden soil isn’t acid enough for me to plant out directly into my garden so I’m going to pot them up into pots increasing pot size as they grow larger, and of course remembering to use fresh ericaceous soil each time. After doing some research it does seem that you can use tap water as long as you replenish the ericaceous soil maybe every two years. This might seem like a lot of hard work but the result will be worth this extra effort because you’ll be rewarded with some lovely healthy ripe blueberries. With lots of mulching to keep the roots from drying out and to help retain moisture. This is all new to me so it’s going to be a little bit of trail and error as I go....fingers crossed.
