HI My Blueberry Bush has new shoots on it that are pale pinky in colour and don't seem to be progressing.

It fruited well last year. I regularly feed and water. Not sure if I should trim them off and what time of year should I do this.

Answer: Hi Lee,

Thank you for contacting Yates.

Blueberry flower and fruit on the new wood, hence it’s essential only prune after fruiting. Late prune could reduce flowers and fruits for the coming season.

To feed, try Yates Thrive Natural Citrus & Fruit Pelletised Plant Food. It’s enriched with Dynamic Lifter and has added nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium to give your fruiting plants the right balance of nutrients for their growing needs. Click here for more info:

Best Regards,
Yates Horticulturist
