I have two bushes one is ok and the other is not doing so well (n
They are both in containers. In the past I have given the them ta
water but from now on it is only rain water.
They are out in the patio. They are about 2 years old and have neve
even had flowers let alone fruit. What can I do ?
BTW I live in London, England and in the past they were inside. Wa
that a mistake
blueberrys need a 4.5 ph level, if levels above 5.0 you will begin to
see signs of stress in the plant
and by the way, check out hydroponic blueberries, i am off into these
shortly, strawberries are happening FINE!

Blueberries need highly acid soil. I grow mine outdoors in large pots of
ericaceous compost. I've used tap water in the summer, and they don't
appear to suffer from it. At this time of year the bushes shouldn't have
any foliage on them. I think (not certain) that they need a period of cold
weather in order to grow well.
A Google search brings up lots of information:
I have never heard of a male and a female blueberry bush. I have the
growing as a hedge along the front of my house and the thing abou
blueberries is you need two different varieties for them to produce
They also like very acid soil. I put pine needles around mine for th
acid. It works very well
I actually don't have pine trees myself but others living around me do
They rake up the needles once in a while and then I get them from them
I usually mulch the berries once a year with the needles
