Into each of these beds, I'll be putting my new blueberry plants. They should be arriving as bare root plantlets later this week, ready to be popped into the ground and wake up with the growing season. They should love the good drainage and constant moisture, as well as the acidity contributed by the rotting pine branches and needles. I'll be mulching them with a layer of cocoa beans mixed with pine bark mulch, which should also boost the acidity. I'll dress them with Blueberries Alive! organic fertilizer, which I purchased from the Gardens Alive catalog. Hopefully, they will be extremely happy and reward me with a bumper crop of blueberries in a couple of years.
