Anyway, I got on craigslist and found someone selling blueberry plants for $4. I thought that was a steal so I agreed to buy 5.
Before I got the plants I had to prepare the area.
|I started by removing the lousy clay soil that I have. I did this by digging a long trench.|
|I filled the bottom of the trench with rotting wood.|
|Then I covered the rotting wood with rabbit manure and garden soil. Then I lightly spread some of the clay soil that I removed on top.|
|I planted 3 plants in this area and put down cypress mulch to help retain water.|
|I had two Irripans so I put them on two of the plants. They'll help with water and reduce weeds that would compete with the small blueberry plants.|
|The plant in the center did not get an Irripan. Finally, I'll be able to directly compare the results of a plants with Irripans to one without.|
