Pruning of Blackberry and Blueberry Plants

jimrieff added on March 22, 2011 | Answered

I have two blueberries and two blackberry plants - planted last year (bare root). The blueberries are about 18" tall, whereas the blackberries are 4 -6 feet tall. Should they be pruned, and if so, how and when? I have raspberries also - planted three and have several suckers. I was going to prune these by cutting all of them to the ground in early spring - correct?
Thank you
