|I have a blueberry bush that is approximately 7 foot tall. I would like to relocate it. When is a good time for relocation, how deep are the roots and how far out should I dig from the trunk.|
|The best time to relocate a blueberry bush is fall or late winter. Try to get a section of root mat about 4 feet wide and 10 inches deep. You can slide a tarp under the bush as you lean it over and use the tarp as a "sled" to move the bush to its new location.|
Set it at the same depth it was growing before and then firm the soil around the roots and water it in well. Cut the top back to about 4 feet, and be extra careful to keep it moist but not soggy during this first warm season.
