Can we grow blueberries in Kentucky?
Highbush (northern) Vaccinium corymbosum L. blueberries will do well in most parts of Kentucky. Blueberry soil requirements differ from those of most other fruit crops. They thrive in a highly organic, well-drained soil with a pH of 4.5 to 5.2. Most Kentucky soils do not meet these requirements; however, you can amend most sites to provide an environment suitable for blueberries. Begin soil amendments at least one year before planting the bushes.
