These low bushes could even cover ground for you. Plant them 18 inches apart on center near the edge of your mixed planting beds for a hard-working groundcover.
Blueberries need acidic soil to develop fruit with a soil pH below 5.5. Watch our YouTube videos and check out the Garden Blog for a lot more information on care tips and tricks.
In areas with alkaline soil, keep Midnight Cascade as potted plants in ericaceous soil mixes designed for “Acid Lovers”. Ensure your hanging baskets have good drainage holes!
Feed your Midnight Cascade a slow-release fertilizer for fruiting plants according to the directions. Use the listed application rate to avoid overfeeding.
#ProPlantTips for Care
Place your Midnight Cascade Blueberries in full sun. Ensure they receive at least six hours of sunlight a day, and ensure they have plenty of good air circulation.
Blueberries also must have consistent hydration as a key to success, especially during fruit production. Because municipal water can be alkaline, you might consider capturing pH neutral rainwater.
Prune to shape in late winter, if needed. Trim just above swelling buds at a 45-degree angle, using clean garden snips.
Include these popular, compact shrubs into your summer landscape! We’d simply encourage you to hurry…as people across the country are searching for Midnight Cascade Blueberry.
