Spring or fall are the best times to transplant blueberry bushes. However, if you can ensure that it will get plenty of water while it re-establishes in another location, it is still possible to transplant successfully. Also, if you can ensure that the majority of the roots and surrounding soil is lifted and replanted in suitable growing conditions, you'll have a greater chance of success. To reduce shock, trimming may help.
