Blueberries grow naturally in the south, but it can also be easy to grow blueberries in your own back yard. Each bloom on a bush will produce a berry. Blueberries are usually harvested during May and June. "Rabbiteye" blueberries can make about 15 to 25 pounds of berries every season.

As easy as it can be to grow blueberries, it's also easy to fail if you don't plant them properly. Blueberries need to be planted in soil that has high content of organic matter. Organic matter can be compost, such as worm castings or hen manure. Mix the compost one to one with the soil that comes out of the ground. With a decent place to grow, blueberries can grow and produce for many years.
