Blueberries

Blueberries are a hardy fruit and be grown in very cold winters.  Unfortunately, they like acidic soil and Utah's soil is usually alkaline.  The soil here in the basin is usually very alkaline so blueberries do not usually fare well in our native soils.  That doesn't mean they are impossible to grow.  It means that they require extra care.  The secret seems to be getting the blue berries a good acidic soil/mix to grow in and to feed them a proper acid-loving fertilizer the keep the ph on the acidic side.  This is usually best obtained in a raised bed or planter.
