Growing blueberries from seed can be fun, but requires a little patience. First, take ripe blueberries, crush them and rinse them in water to separate the seeds that will settle to the bottom. Then put the seeds in damp sand or paper towel and store them in the refrigerator (+4°C) for about 90 days.

Use acidic soil (pH 4.5-5.5), adding peat or coniferous sawdust, and plant the seeds in small pots, pressing them lightly into the soil. Water to keep the soil moist but not soggy. Provide good lighting (plant lamps or a bright spot) and maintain a temperature of 20-25°C.

Water the seedlings regularly, keeping the soil moist. When they have grown to 5-10 cm and a few leaves have appeared, transplant them into individual pots. Choose a sunny spot with well-drained, acidic soil for transplanting in spring or fall, leaving about a meter between plants.

Mulch the soil to retain moisture and suppress weeds, feed with fertilizer for acid-loving plants and prune annually for better growth and fruiting. Growing blueberries from seed will take a few years, but the results are worth it. Good lucк.
