A Day In The A Blue Mountains.

Thanks for visiting my blog. I welcome you to take your time and browse , visiting my bush garden and discovering the wonders of my city within a national park; Blue Mountains National Park. Via my blog you will travel with me through the successes, trials and tribulations of gardening on a bush block.

Day 326/366


I've been picking a small handful of blueberries from my garden most days.
I have two small plants in pots, under nets, to stop the birds from eating them before I do.
They are doing so well I've decided I must get a couple more plants for the garden.
That way I will have two small handfuls of blueberries at least every other day.
Blueberry plants prefer acid soils so are suited to mountain gardens.  For pollination to occur at least two plants are necessary.

One cupful of blueberries provides you with twenty five percent of your daily average allowance of manganese, twenty four percent of your daily average allowance of vitamin C, and thirty six percent of your daily average allowance of vitamin K.

  1. Blueberries are nice SP. We used to have a row of black currents at one house we had and the kids and I used to enjoy picking and eating them straight off the bush. Your blueberries have the same fate it seems :-) - Dave
