Start by selecting the planter you want to pot the blueberries in.  Make it large, at least 18 inches deep and as wide as possible.  These plants need lots of space for a hearty root system with plenty of room to grow. Place the container in a area of your yard or garden where it will be full sunshine.  Use a potting mix that will give you great drainage.

Potted blueberries are easy to care for.  Water at least 1 inch per week but if your pot is in a windy area you may need to water more.  Apply a thick layer of mulch after potting to keep moisture locked in and fertilize about 3 weeks after planting. Birds can be an issue since they love to dine on the berries so you may need to net the potted plant to eliminate that issue.  Don't worry about pruning for the first few years.
 
Pick the potted berries when they fall into your hand when touched.  They will be very dark blue and really sweet.  Refrigerate them so they don't spoil before you can eat them.  Have fun & enjoy!
