I am Growing a blueberry bush in a pot on my patio. It’s new leaves are a mottled greens yellow

I feed it with power feed weekly and it has a few berries on it. It was planted in a pot ( as a seedling)in March. Is it needing something different added to its power feed?

Hi Andrea, 

Thank you for contacting Yates.

Looks like the plant is suffering from lack of trace elements. To feed, try 'Yates Health Tonic Trace Element Chelates' as an easy to use liquid trace element mix. Recommended as a foliar application, this delivers nutrients directly to the deficient leaves for faster results.

Meanwhile, it is best to check the soil pH of the potting mix. Blueberry thrives in acidic soil with pH around 5-5.5. To help lower your soil pH (making it more acidic), try 'Yates Soil Acidifier Liquid Sulfur'. It helps creates ideal growing conditions for acid loving plants such as camellias, azaleas, magnolias and blueberries. It's an easy-to-use liquid formulation, it can be diluted and applied without the dust and the mess associated with traditional granular products. Click here for more information on this product:

Hope this helps and happy gardening :)
