You can dig and transplant your blueberries any time the ground is not frozen. If you move them early in the spring they should flower and set fruit right on time. Just try to keep the main root mass intact when you dig. Expect the roots to be in the top 12 inches of soil and extend out as far as the tips of the branches. Replant at the same soil level as they were growing before. After watering them in well after the move, you can trim them back to encourage healthy new growth. Best wishes with the move!
