When is the best time to trim blueberry bushes?
I live in the Reno, NV area and just wanted to know if there was anything I could do for the blueberry leaves, which are turning brown.
I just purchased a blueberry plant here in southern California. I planted it in good soil (with worm casings, bat guano, etc. ). I water it well every 3-4 days; however, the leaves at the top are drying out. Do I need to cut the plant back? What is causing the dried leaves? Am I over watering, not watering enough, etc. ? There are no bugs on the plant and it’s very leafy. . . just seems that the leaves on the ends are drying out and turning brown and crispy.
I would like to know when to prune older blueberry bushes in NC.
If I reduce the height of my plant, how will it affect berry growth? Do they grow from new shoots?
Do blueberry bushes drop their leaves in the fall? Some of the leaves on my bush are starting to brown around the edges. Is this because the bush is deciduous or is it too dry? It is a fairly young bush, although it did bear some fruit this year.
I have a 4 year old blueberry bush about 1 metre tall, which fruits well (except that I forget to cover it and the birds get the berries before me!). When is it the best time to dig it out and plant it into a container so that I can cover it with a net and enjoy the berries next year? Should I cut it back hard? Thank you.
