Here's where the proposed blueberry hedge is to go.

One concern is that the plants won't get lots of sunlight as the house is just to the left of the photo and also the plants need to get above the wall to get longer evening sun.  That will be doable I suppose by making the 6 inch high beds so they will soon see the sun above the wall.  BTW the wall is limestone....ooooer!!!

Really want to see it do well so any suggestions most welcome.

cheers

In the first year would you remove any flowers/berries so as to encourage growth?

TIA
