Have 2 old BB plants (about 20 years old). Still producing, but has lots of dead branches. Can't remember name, but developed at the U of M. Is it safe to prune back to encourage new growth? If so, how much and how far? Any info would be great. Thanks
PS: assume I know nothing

Here is a link to a great blueberry pruning publication. The last page is what you will find most useful on pruning mature plants - Highbush type.
