How To Plant Biloxi Southern Highbush Blueberry
When planting blueberries, the more the merrier we always say! Although one will do, planting even just one more somewhere close by can grant you a wonderful harvest. While being self sufficient, bees and other pollinators will amp up your production of these tasty berries.
How To Water
For best fruit production, the Biloxi does have some interesting watering requirements. When not producing fruits normal watering in needed, so your weekly 'garden walk-though' kind of watering works just fine. When this plant does start its fruit production, that is when things get a little more intricate. Depending on the type of soil you are working with, you want to keep your fruiting plant well watered but not saturated. Over watering of your plant will cause larger fruit yes, but they will lack the taste you are looking for.
How To Fertilize
Established plants should be fertilized every 2-3 years to maintain best foliage and fruit production. Incorporate Elements Starter Plant Food granular form into the soil when planting. If planting in spring or summer, start fertilizing late fall using Elements Starter Plant food granular form on an annual basis each fall. Continue this for the first three years to get your plant well established.
How To Prune
Like other Blueberries during the first few years pruning is only required to remove any dead, weak, or diseased branches. Once established, we recommend pruning annually in early spring, while still in dormancy.
