Grow Blueberries In Your Own Home

Have you known this fruit is wonderful for the memory? Also it can stop memory loss further!

In a 2012 study was shown that one serving of blueberries slows down the damage of cognition/ another similar one of 2013 with lab rats revealed this fruit to keep the brain safe and clear off toxins accumulated.

But there is more. You can now grow this fruit in your own home. It can’t get better than this. Here are the 6 steps to have this fruit in the garden.

1. Pick a planting spot and prepare soil

The blueberries love sun and good drainage too. Give the bushes a good soil as well and water so the plant grows with enough moisture. Also, bad handled soil will give bad blueberries. Get raised beds and if you have no garden or live in a small flat, get patio container. Also provide enough space, 2 and ½ diameter and foot depth for a bush each. Dig a hole and take half of this soil, add same parts moist soil peat moss and mix. If you use the raised beds, use same parts of the moss, rind or plant mix. Avoid the redwood rinds.

2. Space

Separate every bush by 2-2.5 feet and get them 6 feet space to grow each. If you plant them in rows, separation must be 8-10 feet.

3. Plant process

The spring and fall are the best seasons for this. But, in some areas blueberries thrive all the time. If you have baby bushes, be careful to pull out the bush. Next, handle the cortical layer in the root. Add ½ inch soil more than the topsoil amount. Harden this around the root and add the rest of soil. Water this good.

4. Mulching

As far as wreaths go, sawdust, grass clippings, rind mulch and acid tripe are the best. The bushes have roots that are shallow so this means more wreathes are welcomed. Add 2- inches wreathe to keep the moisture and weeds far at bay, and get organic matter. Repeat this yearly and keep in mind never use cedar and redwood sawdust.

5. Pruning

This makes the bush stronger and provides a bigger fruit. When the bush starts to grow, prune this all the time to keep it strong. Clip any flower that shows.

More tips on pruning:

  • remove growths of the bottom of the bush
  • clear dead wood
  • remove discolored branches
  • clear half of wood

6. Fertilization

Always get organic fertilizers. Cottonseed and blood meal are the best, but manures damage the bushes.
