Misty is one of the most attractive southern highbush varieties. The bright blue-green foliage provides a perfect contrast to the pink and white spring flowers and sky blue summer fruit. New Southern Highbush cultivars were developed to grow in Hot to warm climates with low chill hours As a guideline, plant two plants for each blueberry loving family member. Plants can be planted as individual specimens or spaced about 2 feet apart to create a hedge. See varieties for heights and ripening times. Planting In Containers For optimum control of soil factors, it is strongly recommended to plant in containers. The potting mix should be acidic, (pH 4.5-5.5) high in organic matter and well-draining. Recommended mix components include- 40-50% Coco peat and 10% Perlite and sand, 15% Organic manure and Soil. After planting, keep the soil moist and mulch with coco peat, acid compost or sawdust. Watering:- Blueberries require more water than many other garden plants. Keep soil moist. Pruning Pruning blueberry bushes to reduce the number of flowers and developing fruit will improve berry size and hasten development. Allow the plants to get well established in the first year by pinching off flower buds.

Thereafter each winter:

  1. Remove low growth around the base. If it doesn't grow up, prune it out!
  2. Remove dead wood and non-vigorous twiggy wood. Select bright coloured wood with long laterals. Remove blotchy coloured short growth.
  3. If 1/3 of the wood has not been removed by the above steps, thin out the fruiting laterals and small branches until the balance has been obtained.
  4. As plants get older, prune to select 4-6 bright coloured erect canes per bush. Prune these canes in October down to a height of 2-3 ft. Fertilizing Blueberries like acid fertilizers but be very careful not to use NITRATE form!! For newly planted stock, use 2 tablespoons of NPK 10-20-10 or similar fertilizer in late spring or once plants are established.
