Success with blueberries depends on several factors:
- Choose the right variety for your climate
- Pick the right site or location
- Plant in fall
- Amend your soil
- Water regularly
The best site for growing blueberries is full sun. Blueberries can also grow in partial sun or even shade, but more berries will be produced in full sun.
In Georgia, Fall is the best time for transplanting shrubs, including blueberries. They can also be planted in winter or early spring with much success, but blueberries planted in summer will require much care and watering to survive.
Unless you are very fortunate, your soil will need amending. Georgia soil is most often clay which does not drain well. Mix in compost or composted manure and shredded composted bark.
Water regularly, at least once weekly.
