How to Grow Blueberry Plants in Containers

Video transcription

Hi, this is Yolanda Vanveen and in this segment we're going to talk about how to grow blueberries in containers. Now blueberries can grow pretty much anywhere there's a sunny spot. But they're easy to grow in containers too. The material that you will need are a blueberry plant, a container and some potting soil. So step one, I always like to trim up my blueberry bush, it's the fall so they've lost all their leaves and make it more even and pull out any dead branches or leaves. And then you want to break up the roots a little bit, so actually even cutting into them helps a little bit too; either it will be all root, but if it's transplanted too, it's good to stimulate the growth. Next step, put your blueberry into the container. Next step, all some soil to the top and fill in any areas so that it's all soil; we want good drainage. So once you've got your blueberry in the container make sure and put it in the sunniest spot that you can find and make sure it has good drainage, you don't want it sitting in water because it can rot. And in the coldest of climates make sure and bring it into a greenhouse or garage and just leave it dormant to be safe. But blueberries are a great addition to your fruit garden.
