Wood chips versus sawdust for blueberries

Asked February 24, 2020, 11:44 AM EST

Wood chips versus sawdust for blueberries. We recently had some Douglasfir, and redwood trees pruned and have chips available to cover our 90 blueberry bushes. Will chips suffice instead of sawdust?

Sawdust is recommended to be used as a mulch in blueberries, but there shouldn't be any issues with using chips as your mulch. Hopefully the size is not too big or the weeds will be able to come through.

Hope this helps.
