Do I need to do something special to grow blueberries?

Blueberry plants require an acidic, moist but well drained soil, they are native to sandy pine barrens with high water tables. Improve the drainage of your soil by adding generous amounts of compost and peat moss to the planting area prior to planting. Test the soil pH to make sure it is within the preferred range of 4.2-5.2. Consider planting in containers if your soil is too far outside the preferred pH range.
