    What and when do I feed my Blueberries?

    Once established, Blueberries like acid fertilizers such as Rhododendron or Azalea formulations. Another option is to use coffee grounds, as they are rich in nitrogen, magnesium and phosphorous so they help maintain the acidity of the soil. Take care when fertilizing, since Blueberries are very sensitive to over-fertilization. Fertilize once in early spring and again in late spring. Be sure to always water thoroughly after fertilizing. For organic fertilizers, blood meal and cottonseed meal work well. Avoid using manures as they can damage the plants. For more tips about Blueberries, watch our videos:
