The Q&A Archives: No Flowers On Blueberry Bushes

Question: I have three blueberry bushes for two years now from transplanting from the farm. Last year they bloomed pretty good. I pruned them this past late winter.They have leaves but no flowers. What might have happen to them?

Answer: Unfortunately, you most likely pruned off this year's blooms since blueberries bloom on two year old wood. Blueberry pruning is limited to removing dead wood and thinning the oldest branches of mature plants to stimulate newer more vigorous growth. The following page has some helpful instructions and diagrams on blueberry pruning.
