Are you a blueberry lover? If you want to have them available at home, this How To Grow Your Own Organic Blueberries Tutorial will show you in just 6 easy steps.
Blueberries are a great addition to your diet, packed with nutrients and antioxidants, they have also recently been shown to help with brain function and memory loss. At home we absolutely love blueberries. We make blueberry jello, blueberry snacks, and simply enjoy them fresh all the time. Blueberries are so delicious!
Fresh blueberries are sometimes hard to find in supermarkets and can be expensive if you are buying them out of season. They are over $5.00 for a small box sometimes if you buy organic.
One of my dreams is to have my own organic vegetable and fruit garden. I think it is also great for the kids to learn about real food and where it comes from. This is why I am sharing with you this How To Grow Your Own Organic Blueberries Tutorial.
You can grow blueberries in a pot if you don’t have a garden. It is really not that complicated and I think a wonderful family activity. Just imagine growing your own organic blueberries. Simply amazing!
How To Grow Your Own Organic Blueberries Tutorial
1. Choose a nice planting spot and prepare your soil
Blueberry bushes need lots of sun and plenty of water, so you need to choose somewhere that gets lots of sunshine and has excellent drainage so you can be constantly watering them.
You can get your Blueberry Plants from Amazon. They are moderate to easy growing plants. These are 2 1/4 inch potted plants with at least a two inch root system and are at least 3-6 inches tall. You can start growing in 4 inch pots, then re-pot or plant.
2. Give our blueberry bushes enough space
Blueberries need quite a lot of room to grow in, so separate your bushes by 2-2.5 feet, or 6 feet space for one bush. If you are planting the bushes in rows, separate them by 8-10 feet.
3. The planting process
Blueberries are best planted in spring and fall, as these seasons provide the best conditions for them to thrive.
Use about half an inch more planting soil than topsoil, and pack the soil around the root, then add the rest of your soil. Start your bush off with plenty of water, and remember to water it well and frequently. Provide at least one inch of water per week.
Sawdust, rind mulch, grass clippings and acid tripe are good mulching material for your blueberries. As they only have shallow roots it is important for them to get nutrients wherever they can.
2-4 inches of mulching material is a good amount, which should be replaced every year.
Keep your plant regularly pruned to ensure it grows strong and healthy. Clip off any flowers and dead shoots.
Tips for pruning:
Remove any growths from the bottom of the blueberry bush
Clear the dead woods
Clip off short and discolored branches
Clear about half of the wood
These steps should have you on your way to a fresh crop of blueberries right in your own back garden!

In April, 2009, researchers stunned the medical community when they reported chronic inflammation as the root cause of several major diseases.
See, every year 610,000 people in the U.S. die of heart disease. Cancer claims another 584,000...stroke 130,000...Alzheimer's disease nearly 85,000 — and the list goes on.
Truth is, we now know... chronic inflammation is responsible for 7 out of the top 10 leading causes of death in the United States! Hundreds of studies and scientific reviews prove it.
Fortunately, newer research shows you can prevent-even reverse-most major diseases by "turning off" inflammation. And in our new book, we show you how to do just that.
