Is there anything I should be doing to try to get fruit from my blueberry bush? I use fertilizer and aluminum for acidity and it gets the appropriate amount of water. I'm stumped.
Blueberries require acidic soil. Virtually all of Calgary has alkaline soil. No go.

A very good alternative is honeyberry (haskap). Tough as nails, you can have ripe berries in June sometimes.
