Q.I Acquired A Blueberry Plant About A Year Ago That I\’ve Kept Inside. Not Sure What To Do With It!
I put outside one day and the leaves got scorched. I\’ve since kept inside and new growth is occurring. Should i cut off the branches with the scorched leaves? Should i plant this outside? It is a Sharpblue blueberry i couldnt get picture to upload.

I would, definitely, acclimate it to the sun, slowly. I would do so a few hours at a time, increasing in time, until it is able to withstand full sun.
Go ahead and prune off any dead growth. Avoid feeding with nitrates, and opt for ammonium sulfate, instead.
Wait to plant until temperatures are manageable, though. Planting during the heat may not bode well.
