Pruning Blueberries at the Lazy J Tree Farm

February 24, 10:30 am - 12:00 pm

Blueberries: Pruning for Productivity by Jeanette Stehr-Green and Audreen Williams, WSU Clallam County Master Gardeners.

Research has shown that when blueberry plants are not pruned or are pruned too lightly, they fail to develop strong wood and become less productive. Blueberry growers need to establish an annual pruning regimen to remove old and diseased canes, encourage the growth and development of strong new canes, and ultimately increase the blueberry harvest.
After hearing this presentation, participants will be able to:

– Describe the typical growth pattern of a blueberry cane.
– Recognize blueberry canes of different ages.
– Outline a systematic approach to pruning.
– List considerations for pruning different varieties of blueberries or blueberry bushes that have been neglected.

Late winter is the best time to prune blueberries. Blueberry growers will be able to apply what they learn soon after the presentation. With implementation of an annual pruning regimen, the gardeners blueberry bushes will be happier and healthier and produce bigger and better berries!
