Blueberries prefer full sun, but will tolerate light shade (they may be less productive in shade but will still produce some fruit).
Blueberries require constant moisture for maximum productivity. They are actually quite drought tolerant, though in dry situations they will produce less and grow more slowly.
Blueberries are adapted to grow on acidic soils that are fairly poor and they don't need a lot of NPK nutrients. However, they will often be more productive if fed occasionally.
- Tolerates light frost, Needs lots of space
- Small Gardens?
- Yes, but will need a large one, like a half wine barrel
This variety of blueberry can grow to 3' tall, and would be well suited for a container. It is possible to grow them in a large pot with a wide diameter, but you would need to provide adequate support as well.
