Hi my name is James Sheridan and I run a landscaping business here on the Central Coast called Destination Gardens and I'm here at Windmill Farms today in order to show you how to fertilize your freshly planted blueberry that you just bought. Alright for this project you're going to need to find yourself some organic fertilizer. It's good to go down to your local garden center and talk to your nurserymen and see which is your best decision. Organics stay into the soil longer and I don't have to work as hard. It does the job for me. When I use this stuff I don't have to go back like with say others where you have to use it every two weeks and this would be a synthetic fertilizer but this is much better I believe because it's again a natural cottonseed meal which is an acidic fertilizer which is exactly what our blueberry craves. So the way to do that would be to go ahead and pop open the box. You just want to put it on the root line of the plant because that's where the water is going to take it directly. So what I do is I go ahead right near the water well I made and I just sprinkle lightly a nice ring right around that plant and believe it or not that's good to go for up to three to four months and you will notice honestly even though you've bought this thing from a nursery you'll probably see those leaves really darken up for you and turn a nice glossy green.
