Blueberry – Transplanting

Q: Last summer I had several small sprouts near my blueberry plants. You advised me to cut the root connection between them and the mother plant and wait a while to transplant them. Is it time to transplant in February?

A: Now that the weather has warmed up, it is a great time to resume transplanting. Your blueberry sprouts should be well-rooted by this time. Dig them carefully and put them in a well-dug new bed. Don’t expect berries for a couple of years. Your sprout will spend most of their energy growing roots and stems at first rather than making fruit.
