I'm thinking about putting in some blue / black / raspberry bushes along my property line.

I have a south facing row of fairly old pine trees, and I thought I'd put the berry bushes between them so they'd get plenty of sun.

Questions:
-Is it true that pine needles will add to the acidity of the soil? I was reading that fruit bearing bushes prefer a more acidic soil, so planting them beneath the pine trees might be helpful.

-Can I use MM in the hole where I want to plant my berry bushes to help them get established, or is this a waste of MM?

-I read about evergreen blueberries. Are there any drawbacks to evergreen berry bushes?

You are right, under the pines is a perfect place for them.

I put my whole garden under a big pine tree, to help with the severe heat.

We moved our bushes closer to the garden this yr. We left out the vermiculite, for you won't be needing loose soil. We used a mix of compost, peat, and mixed in some pine needles and smashed some pine cones in the hole. We then put weed cloth with pine straw on top. I didn't want to have to do any weeding.

Thanks, Jo!

We have a pretty big yard, and we want a hedge under those pine trees, so I plan to plant a bunch of berry bushes and just let them do their thing. Hopefully they'll get so big, we'll never have a shortage of berries again. Very Happy
