Since it is clay soil and blueberries don't like clay soil - I added peat moss to the area and tilled it in, planted my blueberries, put down the straw.
Then my husband got me a couple of bags of sand to start my sweet potatoes in and when I finished I just threw the sand down right on top of the straw around the blue berries. So if it is in a layermaybe that is different than mixing it together?
