Blueberry pruning

Asked September 22, 2015, 11:45 PM EDT

When should blueberries be pruned? Should I reduce the height of really long bull canes that grew this year?

The long bull canes as you called them are in fact a good thing, your shrubs are healthy.
No do not prune them shorter if you want a full crop of berries. Pruning should be done during the dormant period say February.
