Blueberry Farmer Tips & Advice on 
How to Grow Blueberries in Your Berry Garden

How to Plant Blueberry Bushes

Blueberries are a tasty and healthy berry, borne on a plant beautiful enough to be an ornamental in your backyard or backyard organic berry garden. Blueberries can be easy to grow, require little space to grow (only 2.5' feet between each blueberry plant) and are seldom bothered by pests. They will increase the value of your property, as home builders and realtors alike both come to to buy blueberry bushes from us, because a nice size little blueberry patch actually becomes a nice selling point for selling a home. Home buyers love the idea of having their own blueberry patch in the backyard.

How to Grow Blueberries at Home

With a few basic steps, planted right, your blueberry plants can pay dividends of a lifetime of fresh blueberries. Let DiMeo Farms teach you how to plant and grow organic blueberry bushes the right way. Follow our easy farmer's blueberry planting tips and blueberry planting instructions for success.

Best Tasting Blueberry Varieties

We can have or have access to many blueberry plant varieties, but we feature the most popular and productive blueberry varieties to grow. Of course, our inventory can change frequently. We recommend AT LEAST TWO (2) blueberry bushes per person, per household. For example, if you are a family of four, we recommend at least 10 blueberry plants for a household that size.

Blueberry Site Selection & Planting Preparation

Select a sunny location. As sunny as possible. Blueberry plants prefer direct sunlight, but many of our customers have been successful with only 4 to 6 hours of sunlight per day. If you have almost total shade, then consider buying aronia berry plants instead, as they can thrive in shade quite well. 
Blueberry planting soil should be well drained, free of weeds and well worked. Locate your blueberries bushes where water is available, as blueberry roots should be kept moist (not soaked) throughout the blueberry growing season. If the blueberry soil is poor or marginally drained, raised beds up to 3' feet wide and 16" inches high works well. But you should only "ridge your rows up" if you have a drainage problem. If you don't have a drainage problem, then there is no reason to raise your blueberry rows.

Incorporate 50% peat moss into your existing soil only if it's a sandy or sandy-type soil. Dig a hole THREE TIMES the size of a bowling ball. If your soil is not sandy, just completely discard it, throw it away and replace it with a mix of 50% sand and 50% peat moss. PEAT MOSS IS CRITICAL FOR LONG-TERM SUCCESSFUL BLUEBERRY PLANT GROWTH. If you don't have peat moss, DiMeo can sell you the best peat moss for PICK-UP ORDERS ONLY. We DO NOT ship peat moss. The DiMeo Farms recommended proper blueberry soil mix is a mixture of 50% sand mixed with 50% peat moss. Remember, blueberry plants thrive in acidic organic soils which you can create easily with a mixture of sand, peat moss and "Holly Tone" which you can buy online or at stores like Lowes or Home Depot. The same goes for the sand, Home Depot and Lowes sell it in 50lb bags in masonry section. Don't buy the children's "play sand" but get sand they use to make concrete with.

Once you become a DiMeo Farms customer, if you are planting high-volume, we can connect you with our peat moss supplier who can sell you peat moss by the tractor trailer load. We will get you our low peat moss prices. Our DiMeo family has been dealing with the same privately owned peat moss bog for decades. FYI. His minimum order is 24 pallets of peat moss, 30 bails per pallet, so that's 720 bails of peat moss which comes to about $5,000 per trailer load. So this only applies to those of you who are planting measurable blueberry acreage of 1 acre or more.

Blueberry Field & Blueberries Plants Spacing

Plant blueberry bushes only 2.5' feet apart between the actual berry plants in the row. If you are planting an edible blueberry hedge row then space 2' feet apart. The spacing of your rows will depend on what kind of implements you are using. For example, if you are home gardener you might want to just plant grass and mow between the blueberry rows with a lawn mower. If you are a small farmer or have a small PYO berry farm, you might want to cultivate between the rows with a 6' wide disc, cultivator or mower brush cutter which means that you will need 9' between rows. Just because you space blueberry bushes farther apart does not necessarily mean that you will see an increase of blueberry production or productivity. It's mostly a cosmetic thing depending on your individual design and intent with your blueberry plantation.

Planting Blueberry Bushes Properly

Dig a hole about THREE TIMES the size of a bowling ball, then mix 50% sand with 50% peat moss. Place this mixture in the hole you dug to plant the blueberries plants. Then take the "Holly Tone" for acid loving plants, and put a few table spoons of Holly Tone in a circular band around the base of the newly planted blueberry bush.

Mulching Blueberry Plants with Pine Bark Mulch

Pine bark mulch is good for water retention and improves berry plant health. We recommend up to 4" of untreated, pine wood chips. Avoid using leaves, grass clippings or sawdust as mulch as they inhibit hydration. If using these mulches you may want to use a little extra nitrogen to maintain berry plant growth. Blueberry bushes do best with up to 4" inches of cedar or pine wood chips over the roots to conserve moisture, prevent weeds and add fully composted organic matter. If you use peat moss then you are giving your blueberry plant the long-term organic matter it loves.

How to Plant Raspberry or Blackberry Bushes

Keep raspberry plants well watered to maintain moisture and establish raspberry bushes with little stress. For raspberries planting is 18" inches between each raspberry or thornless blackberry plant for spacing. Spacing between your raspberry rows will depend on what type of machinery you are using to cultivate or mow between your raspberry field rows. We recommend fall raspberry pruning for increased raspberry bush health. Fall pruning raspberries to prevent winter damage. We have reduced winter damage by pruning our raspberry plants in late fall and cutting them down to around no taller than 21" inches. Pruning raspberry bushes reduces the surface area of the plantings, decreasing winter damage due to raspberry plant desiccation. We have seen virtually no winter damage in our summer red raspberries or thornless blackberry bushes. This is due to the fact, that we try to prune them every late-fall before winter.

At our blueberry plants nursery, we try to be aggressive with our blueberry pruning and other raspberry pruning strategies. As soon as the summer blueberry harvest ends, we usually begin pruning blueberries as soon as the leaves fall off in early fall. It's important to wall till the leaves all fall off in early fall so you can see what you are pruning off the bushes. Otherwise, it can be hard to see. We know many of you would like to know exactly how to properly prune blueberry bushes and we are still working to put together a new YouTube video to show our blueberry plant customers exactly how to prune blueberry plants the right way.

Drip Irrigation for Blueberries & How to Prune Blueberries

We recommend using drip irrigation placed at the base of the blueberry plants. Then you may apply water at your convenience and know the water is getting to the blueberry root zone where it is needed most. Because of blueberries shallow root system, they may require frequent watering. Maintain moisture, and do not allow roots to dry out, but do not saturate or soak them. Water as needed, depending on warm temperatures and any lack of normal rainfall.

Every year, older more mature blueberry bushes should be pruned to avoid over-fruiting, which results in small fruit or overall lack of plant vigor and growth. Remember to always keep the soil moist throughout the establishment period of blueberry plants. Especially during the first 6-8 weeks after planting. Invest in a small automatic timer that you can attach to your drip irrigation hose so you don't forget to water. It's easy. Drip irrigation hose is cheap. If you buy drip irrigation hose commercially, it comes in 1000' foot rolls and 1000' foot roll of drip hose should only cost you around $150. You can order it online and have it shipped direct to your location. Remember that drip irrigation hose is all "low pressure" so that means it doesn't take a big irrigation pump or a big irrigation well to water a small patch of blueberries.

For example, if you only have 1/2 acre of blueberries to water. That's only 600 blueberry bushes to that half acre. You can literally break that area up into two different watering zones and then water it with a garden hose spigot off your house. Once again, it's all low pressure irrigation so it does not take a complicated or costly system to power your blueberry irrigation. To water an entire acre of blueberries bushes (1,200 blueberry plants) spaced 2.5' feet apart, so a total of 3,000 feet of field rows needed to be irrigated, divided by 1,000, because drip irrigation comes in 1,000' foot rolls, so that means, you only need 3 rolls of drip irrigation to water your acre of blueberries plants. Each roll of drip $150 per roll, so that only $450, which is cheap. Of course you will need some fittings and some extra stuff like that, but its not expensive.

Remove any dead blueberry wood that might develop over time as the blueberry bushes age. Also take off any non-vigorous or twiggy wood. Remember that the biggest and most blueberries will come off the young blueberry cane. First year and second year new growth. Keep the bright colored healthy, young blueberry wood. Remove blotchy-colored or short growth. If 1/3 to 1/2 of the wood has not been removed by the above steps, thin out the fruiting laterals and small branches until this balance has been obtained on the entire blueberry bush. Many people don't understand how to properly plant a blueberry bush, so we make a blueberry pruning video below for you to watch. Keep in mind that the berry bushes shown in the video are older mature blueberry bushes.  

Fertilizing Blueberry Plants & Bushes 

Never fertilize blueberries plants at the time of planting. We recommend using organic, slow release fertilizers. A mixture of 1 part kelp, 3 parts fish meal and 3 parts bone meal works well if you want organically grown blueberries. Apply in early Spring. Or use an acidic additive such as Rhododendron food (5-5-3) a.k.a "Holly Tone" for acid-loving plants like blueberry bushes.
Avoid using fresh manures on any of these berry plants and always water well after fertilizing in early Spring. Remember, you only fertilize once a year. Just one time in the spring and that's it.

If using a non-organic fertilizer, on newly planted berry stock, use two tablespoons of 10-20-10 (or similar slow-release fertilizer) in late spring or once plants are established. Be careful. Blueberry bushes are very sensitive to over fertilization. For subsequent years, use one ounce of fertilizer for each year of blueberry bush age, to a total of eight ounces per blueberry plant. Apply in early Spring for best results. A good source of nitrogen is Blood Meal 12-00 instead of using ammonium sulfate.

Soil pH for Blueberries Bushes

For best success with your blueberry plants, we recommend that you measure and maintain your soil pH levels regularly. Keeping your soil pH levels between 4.5 to 4.8 is very important for your blueberry bushes. Adding some slow-release garden sulfur is the best material to use to reduce soil pH levels. Just dont put it down too heavy. Start light and then take another soil sample about 6 months later.
 We will sell you certified organic sulfur if you need sulfur just ask our DiMeo farmers. We sell garden sulfur in large 50lb bags or in smaller amounts for home growers that need to buy garden sulfur for blueberries. Just please be sure to let us know ahead of time that you intend to buy sulphur, so we can make sure we have it in stock.

Birds or Deer and Blueberries Bushes

Not many of our customers have issues with birds and berries, but some do. Here are some helpful tips from DiMeo Blueberry Farms on dealing with birds and blueberries. 
Buy 3/4" mesh bird netting with UV protection. The bird netting can be draped over the blueberry plants, but we recommend installing a light, yet simple support structure. This will avoid entanglement of the net in the blueberry branch tips. Always remove the bird netting at the end of your berry harvest to extend the life of netting. Some of our customers even paint the corner post poles and decorate them as to become more decorative in the berry garden. Here's an example of what you will need, for 12 bushes, 17' ft x 100' ft of bird netting. For 6 bushes you will need 17' x 50' of netting. Sorry, we do not sell bird netting. For deer, just use small soap bars hung next to young plants which should deter deer until the berry plants get bigger.

Diagnose Blueberry Bushes Problems

Yellow leaves on blueberries can be quickly corrected with a foliar application of 1-table-spoon iron chelate in a gallon of water sprayed over the blueberry bush leaves. You should see greener blueberry leaves in a few days. However, the real culprit may be that the blueberry bush soil pH is likely too high. 
You should be seeing up to 12-18" inches of new blueberry bush growth every year. If not, re-check your soil pH and/or use slow-release garden sulphur to lower the pH. Of course, we do recommend that you use organic fertilizers with your blueberry bushes. A slow-release organic blueberry bush fertilizer is best, this way you won't burn the berry plants.

Common Blueberry Planting Mistakes

Pack soil firmly around the blueberry plant roots when planting. Water your berry plants well. Especially during the first 4-6 weeks of establishment period. Keep the soil moist, not saturated. Avoid fertilizer burn by fertilizing only after berry plants are established with slow release organic or non-organic fertilizer. Do not soak the berry plants in water for more than one (1) hour after you receive them. If you can't plant them right away, then just temporarily pot them up until you are ready. Plant DiMeo Berry Plants immediately  upon your receipt. Of course there is no rush if the berry plants are potted and you pick them up at the farm. In that case, you have plenty of time to plant and there should be no immediate rush, just keep them watered.

Old DiMeo Blueberry Field Replanting

Our family has some blueberry fields over 50 years old. DiMeo blueberry bushes can often live a long time before losing productivity, some up to 30 years or even more. WATCH BELOW VIDEO of second generation DiMeo blueberry farmer M. DiMeo, Sr. (84 years old) replanting a field of old DiMeo blueberry bushes he planted over 45 years ago. He decided to start replanting blueberries in his blueberry fields during early fall blueberry planting season after the seasonal blueberry harvest was complete. He loves working on his blueberry farm. Just a few blueberry plants are removed, here and there, depending on which blueberry bushes he felt needed to be replanted. He is not replanting the entire blueberry field, but rather, just select number of blueberry bushes every year. This is done every year to keep the blueberry field acreage as productive as possible. You don't need a tractor hoe machine like this unless you have many acres of blueberries that you need to plant or replant. But, if you think you really need one, they are pretty cheap to rent.

How to Cultivate Blueberries Bushes

Many of our DiMeo Farms customers ask how to cultivate blueberries using the best old fashioned farming methods for both draining blueberries fields and working the blueberry soil to reduce weed growth and increase blueberry plant vigor. Some ask "what causes that ridge" the blueberry plants sit on top of, well here is the answer... over time, as the blueberry bushes grow, you go up and down the blueberry field rows, in 2nd gear (high) on your farm tractor and carefully throw dirt up around the base of your blueberry bushes. Commercial blueberry growers use this special "side winder disk implement" once a year for berry cultivation along with other special blueberry farm tractor implements that we can tell you where to buy at our low discount prices. We not only have time tested blueberry farming and best blueberry growing methods that work, but we can get you just about any equipment at our cost. We have countless contacts in the blueberry industry, which is yet another reason why so many customers decide to buy all their blueberry plants from DiMeo Farms. Not only great berry plants, but a long list of amazing contacts in the blueberry industry who can help you hit the ground running. 

 Pruning Blueberry Bushes After Blueberry Season

Our professional DiMeo blueberry farmer can even teach you how to prune blueberry bushes properly after blueberry harvest is completed. There is a old fashioned blueberry pruning method to trimming blueberry bushes to increase blueberry crop yield per acre and maintain strong hardy blueberry bush growth that will produce more pounds of blueberries per acre. WATCH VIDEO BELOW of the DiMeo's trimming blueberry bushes in this video on how to care for blueberries after the annual blueberry harvest. Notice the 9' foot wide blueberry field rows, so when the 6' foot brush hog goes down the row, it has 1.5' clearance on either side. Notice the mature blueberry bushes are only 2.5' foot apart, yes our family plants them "that close" because thats proper planting for a commercial blueberry farm, and we also recommend that spacing for pick your own blueberry farms. Spacing blueberry bushes farther apart will not necessarily increase blueberry yield or production as some think it will. If you are homeowner who just wants to plant blueberry bushes in your backyard, of course you can space them farther apart for cosmetic reasons.

Some of you are looking for how to care for blueberry bushes in the fall after blueberry picking season is complete. Of course you can plant blueberries in the Spring, but many people don't know that Fall is also a great time to plant blueberry bushes. This way the berry bushes can put down roots in September, October or November, so when Spring rolls around again, your newly planted berry plants will have established plant root systems and "hit the ground running" with instant berry production. As always, we love to give our DiMeo DiMeo Berry Plants Garden Center customers the best FREE blueberry planting advice, so we made a video to give you just a taste of what our berry farming family does almost every Fall season once the blueberry bushes go dormant.

Replanting Old Blueberry Bushes Field

If you have an old blueberry farm and want to learn how to plant blueberries or how to replant blueberry bushes, we can teach you the right way to replant old blueberry fields. Many people don't know this, but if you read the fine print "replacing or replanting old blueberry bushes" falls under USDA Tree Assistance Program which means (if you qualify) they will pay you to replace old blueberry bushes on your farm. For decades, our DiMeo family has been replanting blueberries as the productive blueberry fields age. In the video below you will see our family re-planting blueberry plants at a 40 year-old blueberry farm field that needed to be replanted. You might be surprised just how hard Mr. DiMeo, Sr. "cuts back" his blueberry re-plants, but its what he recommends. The new blueberry bushes should be substantially cut back for proper transplanting of blueberry plants to minimize transplant shock. WATCH VIDEO BELOW and listen to the old-fashioned DiMeo Farms recommended blueberry replanting method. Notice not to plant blueberry bushes too deeply when planting blueberries plants or replanting blueberry bushes like these shown on Mr. DiMeo's old blueberry farm fields right after blueberry season was finished and the weather starts to cool down in fall. Now is a great time to plant or replant blueberries bushes on your property.
