Potting Up

Two highbush blueberries in pots in front of a cellar door

Sunny, High in the 40s

Moved blueberries from bed by patio into 22″ pots. Filled the planters with a mix of my own garden compost, store-bought bagged mix, perlite for drainage, and an organic soil acidifier. Pruned the bushes back and watered a lot. Still need to mulch them – will probably use needles from Christmas tree and pine roping.

Project used most of one compost bin, so moving the bin over to the barn tomorrow, and putting the not-quite finished stuff into the tumbler.
