Knowing how to prune your blueberry bush is easy once you realize you are growing the bush for fruit production and not just ornamental purposes.
Fruiting plants tend to look a little spindly in the beginning of the season but this allows the blueberry bush to concentrate on producing fruit and not a landscape ornamental look, full of leaves and vegetation. Although a good pruning of your blueberry bushes will cause it to fill in nicely the crop will be far better when following some simple tips of what to look for and how to effectively prune your blueberry bush.

We have stopped all retail sales but the information contained in this article is still relevant for our area.
We have listed most of the varieties of blueberry plants that we sell at Ramona’s Garden. It is our commitment to mostly sell blueberry plants that are not protected by patent or other licensing, we do sell cross pollinated and/or tissue cultured berry plants. Some of the varieties we have been asked about we have listed and explained their propagation and listed the parent blueberry plants which in most instances we do sell.
Most of the time when we’re making the decision on what blueberry plants to purchase from our local growers (Idaho, Montana & Washington) we look for plants release by the USDA or other blueberry plants that don’t hold any restrictions. Theoretically, by law, even the home gardener is restricted from sharing or propagating
blueberry plants, or other plants, that have a patent or license on them. To sell blueberry, or other plant material, with such licensing requires the reseller to pay a royalty fee on the blueberry plants which are owned by the licensor. Didn’t know you were going to get a tiny law lesson too, did ya?
Okay, so onto the listing of blueberry plants this brought you here in the first place. We look forward to seeing you here at Ramona’s Garden. If you have any questions about the blueberry plants or other plants we sell feel free to email, call or text. It might take me a few to get back to ya but I will!
