In order to get a blueberry bush you must first determine wither you are going to plant a full grown bush or by seed. Seeds tend to be more rewarding as they need more care making you appreciate your hard earned fruit, while plants grow to maturity faster and produce fruit at a closer time for those with busy lives. Then you must determine a good spot to plant your plant or seed. The area that you pick needs to be full sun, good well drained soil and room for several plants to be planted. Also the soil needs t be tested for an acidic soil as they blueberry plants tend to like, if not the area can be made acidic with the correct fertilizer.

The area for a seed must be fertilized with the correct fertilizer that can help make it more acidic. It should also be watered when the seed is added. After the seed is plant it should be watered daily until it reaches a healthy size. Plants that are to be added must have a hole dug that is twice the size of the root ball. Also it must be fertilized and watered after planting the plant. Trimming should be done while the plant is dormant and will promote growth of the plant, making better fruit when the plant is mature. This plant is best pollinated with many of similar plants surrounding it. It should be planted in nice neat rows to promote best pollination.
