David Liezen asked, "Several times I've seen advice to avoid fertilizing
blueberries - they can be overwhelmed, apparently, chemically "burned" I
suppose, which is why duck droppings can be such a boon. What do you advise
in encouraging growth and fruit for blueberries?"
Every couple of years I get a soil analysis done by K Laboratories,
Inc., 2323 Jackson Street, Oskosh, WI 54901. They specialize in analyzing
and recommendations for high value crops, which includes blueberries. I
have compared their work with other labs finding K Lab..........'s work more
reliable and worth the extra $10 for the test. I only have twenty five
blueberry plants and an equal size patch of lingonberries and always find
the soil test well worth the expense.
