Growing Blueberries In Car Tyres.

Is it possible to grow blueberries in car tyres if I stack them two high and line them with weed control matting,and fill with Ericaceous compost,or could I get away with only one tyre depth. Regards Peter

 At present my blueberries are grown in 30 cm pots, but I intend putting them in larger pots because the tend to get blown over when we get these very strong winds especially when they are laden with berries.You all so need a fertilizer that is for these types of crops.
