Q

Is it possible to grow blueberries in Utah County? If so, what do I need to do to help them thrive?

Answer(s)

A

Blueberries need acid soil- we have alkaline soil and alkaline rain.  They will struggle and die in Utah.  I suppose you could try to grow a blueberry in a pot and give it distilled water, but that would be a pain.  We grow great raspberries, strawberries, blackberries, and currants (we even have a native currant- Ribes aureum- Golden Currant).  But, alas, no native blueberries.
