Blueberry ‘Blueray’

Blueberry ‘Blueray’ is an excellent midseason berry, particularly for home gardeners. Due to its winter hardiness, this vigorous plant is a popular choice across the Northeast and Midwest. Blueberry ‘Blueray’ produces high yields of small, tight clusters of medium to large blue fruit. It also adds seasonal interest to any landscape as an attractive deciduous shrub with white flowers in spring, striking autumn colors, and bright red wood in the winter. Blueberries are naturally high in antioxidants and have a high vitamin content. Flavors of sweetness with a desirable hint of acidity make it a fine flavored fruit. Blueberries are excellent in pies and make delicious jams and preserves. Best of all, bake your own blueberry muffins!

Like all blueberries, Blueberry ‘Blueray’ must have moist, acidic soil to flourish. Set plants out as early as possible in the spring. Dormant plants may be planted as soon as the ground is workable. If your blueberry plant has foliage, protect from frost.

Planting/Care Instructions +

Planting Instructions: Prepare the ground well before planting. Blueberries prefer an acid soil. In alkaline soil, add ammonium sulfate for best results. Dig a hole large enough to encompass the roots without bending or circling. Set the plant in place so the crown (part of the plant where the root meets the stem) is about 1-2 inches below the soil surface. When planting, add generous amounts of peat but no fertilizer. Cover with soil to the original soil surface and water thoroughly. Blueberries can also be grown in large pots and containers if compost is used. Prune in winter, cutting out dead or damaged branches. In spring, feed with sulphate of ammonia, sulphate of potash, bonemeal and top-dress with compost.

Pests or Diseases: No serious insect or disease problems. You can protect fruit from birds with netting.
