Can you grow blueberries in Southern California? The answer is a resounding YES. Not only can you harvest a bounty of delicious, nutritious blueberries right in your own backyard, you can do it in containers on your patio or terrace. This incredible superfood was once something you could not get fresh off the bush in Southern California but advancements in plant breeding in the 80's have given us several cultivars that produce a flavorful berry with low chill requirements and they won't succumb to our blistering heat.
This meetup will cover: blueberry varieties, the all important soil preparation, mulching, watering and pruning techniques. I'll leave the harvesting up to you!
This is a 1 hour meetup. Coffee and tea service will be available.
