Caring For Your Blueberry Plants – Pruning & Other Tips!

Step 1: Gather your shears and a sharp knife. Use shears to remove any spindly branches or dead wood that is touching the soil or growing around the plant. Cut off any branches that are too close to the soil and have not produced fruit in at least 2 years.
Step 2: Leave 6-12 inches of stem on each side of the plant. You should leave 3-6 inches between each branch and any other branches on the same plant.
Step 3: Cut off any dead wood, including stems that are touching the soil or have fallen over.
Step 4: Trim back your new branches so they are not touching each other or anything else on the plant.
