Planting Cold Hardy Blueberries in the Alberta Urban Garden Added by Alberta Urban Garden Simple Organic and Sustainable Published on Jun 04, 2014

I am following up our 5 easy tips to pick number 1 was to plan ahead to make sure you have the best plan for your garden. Number 4 was to cheat ;) I picked up Blueberries which I had not planned on ;) that said they are a great addition to my 2014 Goal of adding more perennials to my garden.

Blueberries are a great addition. I have a North Land and a North Country Blueberry. They are both dwarf varieties which don't get larger then 1 meter tall. Although both varieties may need an pollinator however each of them will do well alone.

Blueberries prefer a more acidic soil. I am looking for organic ways to do this but I might need to cheat. I am looking for your help. I have planted strawberries in the bed as well. They enjoy acidic soils as well and will make a great understory to blue berries!

Some of my favorite childhood memories are of gardening with my parents and brothers. This channel is about low cost organic urban gardening in zone 3. I am by no means an expert gardener however I love to share my experiments and journey garden year round.
