Then you will prune the branches that have no berry buds or very few buds.
This allows the branches that do have plenty of bud to get all the sun and nutrients so that the bush can make the most berries possible. This info is shared by Melissa Norris. She then goes on to tells us how to add the acid to the soil that blueberries need and how to mulch in layers all the things that will feed the plant through the season.
