I've had blueberries die from the hot sun in summer, so now I grow them in pots. This means that only can I very easily control the acidity of the soil mix, which is essential for good growth, but I can also move them out into the sun in late Winter / Spring to get a boost pre flowering. I can then move them back into semi shade when it starts to warm up too much. last year I had a great crop by doing this and this years crop looks to be going the same way.

I use an Azaelia potting mix in the pots and top it up with horse manure to maintain the acidity needed.

Blueberries like part-shade, they're stressed in our full sun summers.

Wow - very early for grapes.  What variety?

I wish I can work out what I'm doing wrong with blueberries.  I never get a good crop
