Moisture: Water the misty blueberry plant thoroughly. To help with watering, create a small dam of dirt, about 2 inches high, around the misty blueberry plant. Cut off all the twiggy, branchy growth of the misty blueberry plant. Leave the strongest, hardiest cane/branch.
Planting Instructions: Prefers an acid soil. In alkaline soil, add ammonium sulfate for best results. Prepare the ground well before planting. Dig a hole large enough to encompass the roots without bending or circling. Set the plant in place so the crown (part of the plant where the root meets the stem) is about 1-2 inches below the soil surface. Add generous amounts of peat but no fertilizer when planting. Cover with soil to the original soil surface and water thoroughly. Blueberries can also be grown in large pots and containers, if some compost is used. Prune in winter, cutting out dead or damaged branches. In spring, feed with sulfate of ammonia, sulfate of potash, bonemeal, and top-dress with compost.
Pests or Diseases: No serious insect or disease problems. YOU CAN PROTECT FRUIT FROM BIRDS WITH NETTING.
