I am currently growing 30 blueberries in pots. This is my set up!
30 blueberries. My husband and I got them from his brother when they were about 12-18 months "old" The brother in law is trying to find the balance between farming and his day job, in Kentucky, we are in FAR north east Ohio, so the varieties he gave us are Elliot, Highland, Duke, and a few others. We decided to plant them in pots for a few reasons, one being we are planning to move in a few years, and I want to take them with us AND the soil are our house is pretty terrible we also have a major clay issue. We got 5 gallon paint buckets from my sister, who is a rep for a major paint company. We drilled 4-5 holes about 1/4-1/2 inch in the bottom of the pots and a few about 1-2inches from the bottom up the sides We mixed 1/2 peat moss and 1/2 pine bark mulch and planted away. I took some of that weed barrier, not that thick solid black but the breathable like, mesh netting layed it in the grass in my garden and placed the pots on it. Water frequently. I actually bought a drip irrigation set up for it but just haven't set it up yet.
So far so good, all 30 of the plants are sprouting. Oh and we transplanted them about a month ago.
-the buckets happen to be blue too, so its kinda cute. Hope this helps!!!
If I can figure out how to attach a pic I will!
