I recently moved here from western Oregon, where they grew wonderful blueberries. Is it possible to grow blueberries here in Utah, Salt Lake County specifically? I've noticed that blueberries are not sold at the farmers' markets, and so far I haven't seen any blueberry bushes being sold in nurseries.

Utah's soil is naturally low in organic matter with high pH and a high buffering capacity. Blueberries prefer acid soil with lots of organic matter in it. Because it is so difficult to provide their preferred soil conditions, blueberries are rarely grown here in Utah.

- I have a poinsettia that is about three years old. The first year it bloomed beautifully, then last year and now this year, just before the holidays, the leaves wither and fall off.
