I have blueberries in pots. I plan to put them in the ground in november. the soil is ph 6. should i use your polyhene lined trench method? or should i use an acidic mulch? basically i dont want to dig a trench but if it would affect my blueberries i will.

Although blueberries like a lower pH as ideal, they should be okay at pH 6. Plant on a slight mound and pile up a good mulch of rotted leaves.
