Jelly Bean Blueberry shrubs prefer full sun. Find a spot with rich soil that is moist to wet, preferring acidic soil, with plenty of peat moss and mulch, or plant with the Acid Loving Plant & Berry Soil mix from Fafard. Feed blueberry bushes in early spring before flowers emerge with organic, acidic fertilizer to encourage new growth. Fruit size and production is improved when two or more are planted together.
