Low Bush Blueberries

Did you know that Nova Scotia is the wild blueberry capital of Canada? I love blueberries especially on smoothies, muffins and yogurt! It’s a very healthy treat and packed with antioxidants. I read about the berries online and found out that low bush blueberries can be planted on containers. However, they require acidic soil; so the acidic potting mix suited to flowers like azaleas and camellias and large containers.  It also takes a few years to get a bumper harvest. I’m still deliberating whether to plant a blueberry plant with the limited space on my balcony. Strawberries are definitely an option as I am planning to have them grow in a hanging planter.
