Berries were harvested this year and they are tasty but small, tiny almost. The soil is sandy and the blueberry plants are in among the wintergreen and winter fern and surrounded by red oak although all the oaks are succumbing to blight. I was wondering if there is something we could add to the soil to make the blueberry plants a little happier?
Also, is there a way to coax the blueberries to spread?
Would it be a bad idea to add a few plants of a different variety? The land is as it has always been with all the natural processes intact. I'd like to begin to modify things to create a food forest but I most certainly do not want to damage what has been surviving on its own all these years.
