When to transplant my blueberries

Posted by doris104 Z7 NW Washington ( on

I have lived in the same house for 7 years and planted my blueberries either the year we moved in or the next year. So my blueberry bushes are about 6-7 years old. They have not produced much at all and the berries are very small. I want to move them to a more sunny spot as I think this will help them, and it is more accessible to watering. Is this a good idea and when should I move them? We have had a very dry summer and I'm not sure if I should do it yet or wait for more rain.

Thanks for the help.

Move them in November or so -- when they're dormant. And be certain to get them into their new placa before they "wake up" in spring.

But don't expect any harvest in first year.
I moved my old blueberry bush (added plenty compost) couple years before, in spring i applied coffee grounds from Starbucks around and whole summer was watering.
Second year i got good crop. Well, some animals helped me to harvest but it was good.
