It’s not possible to grow everything in a garden in Illinois, there are a lot of factors at play. Blueberries are one example of that, though it’s not impossible to do. Gwen Podeschi with the Christian County Master Gardeners says it just takes a little extra effort to make that happen. That is why coming up on August 19th they will be holding a workshop called Raising Blueberries.
Podeschi grows blueberries and she says it can be a fun venture, but this workshop can really help someone get started.
In order to properly grow the blueberries, Podeschi says you need to do something called amending the soil.
Podeschi appeared as a guest on the WTIM Morning Show.
