Q.Southern high bush blueberries

Zone Pharr, Texas-9b | Anonymous added on July 25, 2018 | Answered

We inherited 3 large blueberry bushes and 3 smaller ones. The 3 larger are gangly and have not been maintained very well. They are about 2 1/2 years old. We live in Zone 9b. They have been maintained hydroponically but we do not want to continue that. I know that typically they would be pruned in early spring, but should the gangly ones be trimmed now to give them a better chance to grow properly? They had not been maintained in the best light either, and we have them now in our open careport. Texas sun here is blistering with high humidity so we did not want to just put them right out in that sun now, they are currently getting good filtered light and ventilation. Should we wait to prune the big ones or shape them up now? The small ones are in small nursery pots, and we do want to grow them in containers. Would re-potting them in correct acidic mix be better in one pot size up or in the container we finally want them in? Thanks so much for your help
