Hello everyone! This weekend is supposed to be sunny with temps around 49 F (9 C)! Like a lot of us, we've had nothing but cold, dreary, drizzling, rainy, or snowy weather for months. I'm tired of looking at the leftover snow piles... TIRED of it, I tell you! I hope by Sunday I can report that the last of it is gone from my yard (maybe not the iris bed as it still has about 8 inches worth). Anyway, I'm going to be out tidying up things. :-D :-D The snow has melted away from the area where I plan to put some blueberry bushes so I want to start readying that spot. It's a space beneath and adjacent to a large pine tree. It gets decent sun. Last year I had some toms, broccoli, and some other veggies there. Ground is not workable yet. For now, I thought I'd pile a good bit of compost on top and dig it in later. Sjoerd's reco'd azaelea soil -- now, should I pile that on top now too, or wait until closer to planting time? Anything else I should do to make a nice home for some new blueberries? Next.... what type of blueberries? Has anyone ever purchased them online? Next weekend I'm going to a garden show at a large garden center so I can also look at what they've got, if they have anything. I recall folks saying it is good to have several different types of bushes. I'm pretty excited about this -- it's one of my "new" things to try this year. Thanks for the input!!
