How to grow blueberries in Wisconsin

Eric Johnson spoke on Saturday May 17 at A Place to Be on “How to grow Blueberries in Wisconsin”. The presentation was not only informative on how to grow them but it was also educational for those health buffs out there.

When it comes to growing this nutritional shrub know that the soil PHshould be at 4.5. Also, this type of shrub needs acid soil to survive and Sulfur is important for the health and growth of the shrub. The sun is also very important for the Blueberry shrub. The more sun it has the better the harvest. Winter can cause havoc on this type of shrub for if the winter is long and the snow deep, bunnies and deer have a tendency to eat off the blueberry shrub, which in turn affects the harvest for the upcoming season.

On the health side, blueberries are known to reduce the chance of stroke, diabetes and heart disease. As far as taste is concerned the organic blueberries seem to taste better than non- organic. A half a cup a day is what is recommended for people but know that it is expensive.
