Blueberry bush


Blueberry bush

by 2 years ago

I bought two blueberry bushes and they've shot up really high, when do I cut them and how much, they're so high they are bending.

Hello Stéphanie! It sounds as if your blueberry bushes are very happy :D How old are they? And when you say high - how high? Blueberries are quite large, about 1.5m high and across in most cases. You can prune them in winter - remove the largest, oldest and thickest branches only, taking out no more than a quarter of the stems at ground level. I would remove the tallest stems first!
