Planting Blueberries in a Whiskey Barrel Planter #Gardening

I hope you have been well. During my weekends, I have been arranging my backyard garden and it's finally a good temperature to plant my blueberries that I purchased. I have two different varieties, the Aronia and Sunshine Blue. The Sunshine Blue blueberry is one years old and had indications of blueberries on it so I'm hoping that I can get more this year as well. I have been watching out for critters and checking the soil to keep it moist with my fingers. Blueberries like well-drained soil and they are acidic like Indian Hawthorne plants and Azaleas. In the video below, I show you what I decided to use after doing my research and watching others' recommendations. So far this combination of ingredients have been working like a charm. My blueberries are beginning to make new stems and green leaves. They enjoy the full sun too. 

Are you planting blueberries this year and have any tips? Please share them in the comments below.
