Soil Mix for blueberry and raspberry potted plants

Asked October 8, 2015, 7:49 AM EDT

I have a compost pile in my yard. I bought some of the newer Brazzleberry plants (blueberry and raspberry) and would like to put them into very large pots. What do I have to mix in to the compost to make an ideal soil? Thank you, Yvette

You can plant the raspberry in pure compost if you have enough. And for the blueberry, which needs more acidic soil, a ratio of 3 parts compost to 1 part peat should be good. Both will need close attention to watering, as pure compost does not hold water as long as a soil/compost mix.

They will also need fertilizer. Brazelberry has a helpful growing guide on its website:
