Growing new Blueberry Bushes from cuttings

Post  memart1 on 6/4/2012, 8:17 pm

I would like to grow some new blueberry bushes by taking cuttings from a bush that my friend has. Can anyone tell me how to do this?

here are some links:

http://www.ehow.com/how_5568382_start-blueberry-bush-cuttings.html

http://www.ehow.com/how_8134225_start-blueberry-plants-older-plants.html

I believe I will use the last link as it sounds better. Smile

Wishing you much success in your in new plants! Check park seed, they have a great sale right now on the blueberry bushes.

Growing new Blueberry Bushes from cuttings

Post  memart1 on 6/5/2012, 11:08 am

Thanks for the info. I am not really interested in buying any blueberry bushes. My boyfriend passed away in February of 2011 and I would like to start some bushes from his bush before his daughter sells the house. She also expressed an interest in doing this. The berries should be ripe in 3 or 4 weeks, so I am also going to try to get some seed from them, and try that as well. The bushes (2 of them) are much too large to transplant unless she has a landscaper do it. Way back in the early 90's he started some from cuttings and I do have three of those yet.

I can't help -- but I certainly want to wish you well in getting some transplanted. I have plants from my deceased parents, relatives, and other homes where I've lived. It's really nice to have a living tribute.

Mabel - I checked out the first link listed above and it gave great directions on how to get cutting. Best time is early spring or fall.
