My blueberry leaves were turning a light green, showing their veins.
The blueberries were fed cottonmeal and given a thick mulch of old
sawdust. I decided to give the plants a (half) dose of Miracid three
weeks ago, and the bushes have responded with a deep green color and
loaded with berries. Wow! The change was amazing. I was a bit leary
of fertilizing the bushes due to damaging the delicate root system
they have, but now I now better. Perhaps the sawdust drew up all the
nitrogen, I don't know.

It is acidic, like my entire property. I have dumped 500 pounds of
lime over my lawn over the past 10 years and it still shows a pH
ranging from 5.8 to 6.3. I'm thinking about using compost instead of
the old sawdust, but old sawdust on blueberry bushes is what many
Could try using pine needles as a mulch. I put pine needles on my mom's and my
blueberries every year and both of us have had pretty good results. I also
Miracid them once or twice a year in the spring. My soil was kinda neutral to
start with now it is on the acidic side, where it should be for blueberries.
