I learned tons. I've always wondered why my Spartans were not as nice as this I got at Andersons. Now i know. Have not appropriately pruned my berries. Will start on minor renovation now and more significant renovation next winter.

Are cedar wood chips okay for mulch around blueberry plants?
From the publication: "Avoid using fresh cedar or redwood tree sawdust or bark, because these may injure young blueberry plants." pg. 9
