Blueberries   are   healthy and delicious fruits with great health benefits. They are antioxidants and prevent aging, cancer and many diseases of the cardiovascular system. Furthermore, they help control diabetes, blood pressure and cholesterol and are excellent in combating urinary tract diseases.

Growing blueberries at home   is very easy and even if it takes three years to produce the first fruits, it can save us a lot of money. If you don’t want to wait, you can start with a bush that is already bearing fruit. Or start with seeds and follow the instructions below.

First you need to choose the vase. If you have decided to plant seeds, you will need to germinate them in a small container (like a jar). However, if you chose to start from a seedling, you will need to use a larger pot.

For a young plant, a pot measuring around 20 liters is ideal. When the plant is mature, that is, after the fourth year, you will need a 60-75 liter pot.

In winter, pots do not offer the roots the same protection from the cold as the soil. For this reason, it is recommended to isolate them by spreading hay on the ground.

Blueberry plants like acidic soil with a low pH (between 4.5 and 5)   To make the soil acidic, you can add peat moss, cottonseed meal, or a compost made from pine bark and leaves.

Blueberries begin to bear fruit after three years. Most blueberry plants are capable of self-pollination, but to be on the safe side, we can plant two plants from different crops together.

Blueberries need a lot of sun. Water frequently, but they will not grow well if the potting soil is constantly wet. Use light, well-draining soil.
