There is nothing like a bowl of sweet blueberries, companion planting blueberries is fun and delicious. Typically you will find that there are two different shrubs you can cultivate either “highbush” or “lowbush”. They grow and produce differently and the “highbush” is usually taller with bigger berries and “lowbush” is usually associated with wild blueberries but they grow shorter and smaller berries. When the shrubs bear fruit they go from light green to dark purple as they ripen. They should bear fruit from any time between May to August but can be affected by location and altitude.

Excellent choice deciding to grow blueberries! They do require the soil to be more acidic so its best to avoid planting tomatoes nearby.
Tips for Planting and Growing Blueberry in your Garden
It is best to have a sunny area for blueberries really like sunlight and warm temperatures. Also making sure you have an acidic pH in your soil by preparing beforehand is important as adding granulated sulfur to your soil a couple of months before can help add to the overall acidity. They grow really well in soil that has a pH of 4- 5 and that also holds its moisture. Blueberries don’t grow deep roots so a shallow dig about 15 to 20 inches is good but space your shrubs out about 5 feet.
