I have 6 blueberry bushes will this be enough for all 6 ?
Ed L on Apr 9, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, First year plants dose is 1 Table Spoon (tbs.) , 2nd year is 2 tbs. , after that is 1 cup. I once misread the label and thought it said lbs (pounds) instead of tbs Tablespoons, I caught my mistake just after watering it in, then scraped the fertilizer and top layer of soil up and tilled it into my large garden with no harm to either. Don???t make that same mistake I did.

Can blueberries be planted in tubs?
Carol R on May 19, 2020
BEST ANSWER: I have done it and so far so good. I was waiting to decide on a location around m place for the plants. I bought different varieties and didn't want them to cross-pollinate. I was trying to landscape with plants. The only caveat that I have is that I used 55-gallon drums cut in half as the planter to make sure there was plenty of room for the roots and so I could eventually replant them. This will be my fourth year with the plants in the drums and I am planning on transplanting them if it ever stops raining here and after I get the rest of my planting done.
Do I use both of the raspberry food and the fertilizer?
Kelly S on Mar 31, 2021
BEST ANSWER: All I ever used was the blueberry kit just as the leaves were starting to show like it says in the directions. Every time I did that the amount of flowers for blueberries were astounding. Kit alone did a awesome job for me.
When and how should I prune my blue berry bush?
John. T A on Aug 4, 2019
BEST ANSWER: A young bush will not need any pruning, but as it gets older, you may want to prune it for shape in late winter/early spring. Always remove dead/diseased branches and branches that cross each other to keep the air flowing through the plant.
How late in season can blueberry plants take fertizer?
Hillary G on Jul 31, 2019

How can I make my calamondin to bear fruits , it???s been like 6 yreas and it hasn???t bear fruits at all. What fertilizers do I need & when do I apply the fertilizers? Thank you!
Zita E on Aug 10, 2018
BEST ANSWER: It sounds like it's not getting enough sun; it needs at least 6 hours of full sun each day. A lack of phosphorus is likely another reason. We recommend this for citrus trees: // And lastly, has it been in the same pot for 6 years without repotting? If so, it's probably root-bound, which will strongly affect production. Root-prune the tree and re-pot it with some fresh soil. Here's how: // -- scroll down to "Repotting a Tree"
When and how often do you apply these?
Steven S on Jul 1, 2018
BEST ANSWER: In the spring before blooms appear. I'd hesitate to fertilize after picking time. You wouldn't want to encourage growth prior to fall.

Blueberry Plant Success Kit
We are just getting started with using the kit. The netting will come in handy--we have to replace last year's. Adding fertilizer this week. This kit makes it easier to care for blueberry plants. Recommended for first time growers or people like us. Our oldest bush is 10 years old.
