Nov 25, To keep them producing well, blueberry bushes need to be pruned every year.
If your bushes have never been trimmed, be careful not to go overboard the first year: Remove no more than two or three of the oldest canes (more than seven years old). Remove any diseased or broken wood, plus crossing branches. What month do you prune blueberry bushes? The optimum time to prune blueberries is in late winter to early spring after the chance of severe cold is over and before new growth has begun. At this time, it is easy to assess how much, if any, winter injury has occurred as well as how many fruit buds are present.
Blueberry bushes can be purchased bare root or already potted up from garden centers, big box stores, or online retailers.
I know it can be hard to prune any limb that has buds on it, but you're. Cut off half the length of remain leaves. The best time to prune blueberries is in late winter to early spring (January to early March) after all chance of severe weather has passed. Young bushes generally do not require as much pruning; however, trimming blueberry bushes throughout the growing season may be necessary to maintain overall health and vigor.
