My soil is chalky, can I grow Blueberries ?

Blueberries will not grow well in chalky soil, they must have lime free soil with a pH of 4.5 - 5.5

One way round the problem is grow the plants in large pots or containers of ericaceous compost.

Grown in this way, they make quite attractive patio plants with their white scented flowers in spring, and colourful foliage in the autumn.
