I have a blueberry hedge along my brick walk. Their spot is not an ideal location as it is high and sandy. Although blueberries like fast draining soil, they like it moist and acidic. Mine have stayed low in the five years they’ve been planted, and usually produce a few handfuls of fruits in late July which my granddaughter Lizzy likes to eat when she visits. I know they will never produce lots of fruit, but I enjoy their brilliant red fall color so much it makes up the the less than stellar fruiting.
