    Default High Bush Blueberries....

    Have any of you ever tried to dig up and transplant any...??? I'm wondering if they won't do well other than in the type of area that they are found...???
    Sheep hunting...... the pain goes away, but the stupidity remains...!!!

    We wanted to try planting some and my wife was going to just try collecting some bear poop loaded with blueberry seeds as it was everywhere.
    Never did though.

    Blueberries require high acid soil so amend your dirt accordingly.

    I have dug some up in the past from around my cabin which is at 3100 ft in unit 13E and brought them back to Anch and planted, they have done fine and produced berries. As zfisher said they require acid soil, so keep them away from your other typical garden goodies and hit with a small amount of azalea or rhododendron fertilizer in the spring. Also be sure to mix a lot of peat moss into the soil that you plant them in as it is naturally low ph and improves drainage.
