Pruning Time Again
Once again we are out in the fields pruning the blueberries and in the above picture, Mike is pruning dead canes from the blackberries. The bushes look good and most of the snow has disappeared from the fields which has allowed us to start pruning sooner. On Monday, March 22 we will be hosting a pruning workshop for highbush blueberries which will take place from 4:30 to 7:30. The workshop is sponsored by the UNH Cooperative Extension folks who will have several speakers talking about diseases and pests common to blueberries, pollination of blueberry plants and a pruning demonstration. Please wear appropriate clothing and footwear as you never know what the weather can bring.
