My blueberries are about to get a haircut. I cannot reach that high. They were a pretty red in the setting sun this oddly warm afternoon.

There is nothing to be gained to let them grow too tall. Why not concentrate the energy by trimming the top?

They look glorious and warm!

what type of blueberry are these plants?
I will have to go look. After 20 years I have forgotten. There are 2 types as I recall. I will update this post in a bit.

Tifblue and Premiere. The premiere makes a nice large berry and comes early, The tifblue comes later, has a smaller berry and its a bit sweeter than the premiere when ripened over the longer time.

The darker red is the tifblue and the lighter red and yellow leaves are the premiere.
