Pruning Blueberries in Warmer Climates
I am posting this because I see a few questions on other threads with people asking about how and when to prune their Blueberry plants,most likely Southern Highbush and possibly Rabbiteyes in Zone 8 on up.
I'm in a cool Zone 8,just about any Blueberry can be grown here,but most people grow Northern Highbush and a few varieties of Southern Highbush.Rabbiteyes are less common than four leaf clovers,although they may do fine.I have two young ones to try.I prune my plants during the Winter as needed.
But from what I've read,pruning is done a little differently in the hotter Southern areas, to extend the harvesting season?If someone could elaborate about this,I think it may help a few people. Thanks,Brady
