Planting in a bed would seem to lessen the need for watering… Thanks, CP 15th April 2019 at 8:24 am #52794 beverleyParticipant Hi CP I have a collection of 3 different types of blueberry. I “compromised” by creating a small raised bed for them, which I filled with ericaceous compost. In the winter, I mulch with pine needles. I understand that blueberries are moisture loving plants, so watering seems to be inevitable; I give mine priority for watering and endeavour to keep the soil moist.
