Amending soil for blueberries???
I want to plant about a dozen blueberry bushes. My soil is a lovely slightly acid (6.5 or so)well-drained loam. I have read on this forum that I should amend it to make it more acid, let it mellow over the summer, & plant the bushes next fall. (Opinions???)
Sulphur has been recommended as a soil ammendment, tilled in deeply. However, never having used sulphur, I have some questions. How much do I use? Where do I get it? And can I plant a cover crop while I am waiting for it to "work," in the summer before I plant the blueberries?
Or am I getting way too concerned, & I should go ahead & plant now, and then add mulch or compost & let the worms carry it down to the blueberry roots, and not worry about the acid level?
