Pruning blueberry bushes

Watch this to learn how to prune your blueberry bushes for better health, vigor, and productivity…

If you have the right soil, blueberries can be a great addition to your garden or edible landscape! Relatively low-maintenance, blueberry bushes can be quite productive without taking up a lot of space, and can produce fruit for many years if properly maintained.

As with most fruiting trees and bushes, blueberry bushes can benefit from regular pruning. Proper pruning can help to keep the plant healthy, enhance growth, and increase productivity. By encouraging the bushes to grow new branches through pruning, you will gain more, larger, and tastier fruit.

The best time of year to prune a blueberry bush is in the late winter or early spring, before the bushes begin to leaf out. This helpful video walks you through how to prune your blueberry bushes for healthier plants and a better harvest:

An avid gardener since childhood, I love sharing my passion for gardening with others! I have gardened in a number of different climates and settings, from large fenced garden plots, to tiny patio and container gardens, and I firmly believe that everyone can learn to grow at least some of their own food - no matter where you live. Growing your own food can help you take control of your own health and food supply, and there has never been a better time to get started!
