Feed Lowbush blueberry
Letís remember to fertilize our shrubs often; we can fertilize enriching our soil with manure, at the end of the winter; or we can give it a fertilizer for flowering plants, every 20-25 days, when watering. If the shrubs are large or cover a large area, we can use a slow release granular fertilizer, to be used every 3-4 months. In the spring letís favour fertilizers rich in nitrogen and potassium, to favour the development of a new vegetation and of flowerings.

Care Lowbush blueberry
The Lowbush blueberry develops like a shrub. This plant in the autumn assumes a redwhite colouring; it is small in size and can reach 75 cm high. It keeps its leaves in the winter. Growing they develop a round-shape shrub.

Irrigation Lowbush blueberryTenere Umido
Concerning those specimens grown in vases, let's remember that usually they need more watering, compared to the same shrubs placed in the ground. Moreover, they are often more sensible to temperatures, either very high or very low, and to radical apparatus diseases. These plants favour quite regular watering, usually 1-2 buckets of water ; we advise in any case to irrigate every 2-3 weeks , when the soil is dry.

Adversity Lowbush blueberry
The spring weather, with a high temperature swing between the day and night hours, and pretty frequent rains, can favour the development of fungus diseases, which should be treated pre-emptively with a systemic fungicide, to use before the gems grow excessively; at the end of the winter we also suggest a wide range insecticide to prevent the attack of aphids and cochineals. We should always remember to do these treatments when there aren't flowerings in the garden.

Substrate Lowbush blueberry
These shrubs need to be cultivated in a quite drained, specific soil for acidophilic plants.
