    To prepare the soil for blueberries, in order to saturate it with organic matter, it is advised to sow siderates on the site. And can they be sown already around the bushes?

      - Marigolds and oats are best suited as siderates for blueberries, which also inhibit the development of nematodes in the soil. Sowing the plot is still easier with oats. Sow it 2-3 times per season (possible in April, June, September), adding each time up to 10 g of ammonium sulfate per 1 sq.m. Fertilizers can be either scattered before sowing (planting in the soil), or applied immediately with seeds. When the oats reach milk ripeness, blow it into the ground. After 2-3 years of such sowing, the soil on the site becomes ideal for growing blueberries. Oats can be sowed around already growing bushes of blueberries, and in aisles. Oat straw is a good mulch for blueberries.

    What happened to blueberries (see photo)?

      Judging by the photo, blueberries are starving (lacking primarily magnesium). Similar symptoms are caused by iron and sulfur deficiency. Perhaps the pH of the soil on the site is much higher than normal (due to heavy rains this year). In addition, there are spots on the leaves from damage by parasite fungi. Now I advise you to spray the bushes with a solution of copper sulfate (1,5-2 g per 1 l of water), feed with a solution of magnesium sulfate (2-3 g per bush; dilute in water and water), and preferably with a special fertilizer for blueberries containing only trace elements (each instructions). To acidify the soil, water the plants with a solution of citric acid (1 tsp, and in your case, even 1 tsp in 3 l of water).

    Do I need mycorrhiza?
    I saw the sale of mycorrhiza in bags for application to the soil. Can it be applied under blueberry bushes?

      —The peculiarity of blueberries is that, unlike other fruit crops, it does not have suction hairs on its roots. Their function is performed by the mycelium of the fungus, with which the roots of the plant enter into symbiosis, forming mycorrhiza (fungus root). Blueberries and mycorrhiza cannot live separately from each other. However, buying mycorrhiza in bags is an additional waste of money rather than benefit. On the roots of the seedlings you have acquired, mycorrhizal fungi are already quite enough. In addition, each species of plant has its own specific fungi with which it contacts.

    There are a lot of berries on the blueberry bush of the Bonus variety, but for some reason the plant has dried up. Why did this happen?

      - Most likely, the cause of the death of the bushes was the abnormally hot and dry weather, which weakened the plants and caused mineral starvation, together with diseases. Tall blueberries are also sensitive to both deficiency and excess moisture, which can lead to its drying out and death.
      Trim dead branches to vibrant and healthy wood.
      Spray the plant with an antifungal drug (Topsin-M, Scor) according to the instructions.
      For a speedy recovery, treat the blueberry bush with a biostimulator such as Epin, EcoSil.
      Until the end of the season, evenly water and feed with complex mineral fertilizer (special for blueberries with microelements).

    Blueberry eyelet
    In September, I add 100 g of superphosphate per 1 sq. M under the blueberries (close up in the soil). But I do not fertilize the cranberry plantation, but I add coarse-grained sand under the plants (a layer of about 2-3 cm).

    If a blueberry freezes every winter in the garden, in early September you need to throw rope loops on the ends of each branch and carefully bend the shoots to the ground, securing them with pegs. In late October, such bushes are easy to cover (burlap, spanbond, snow).
