The Watauga County Center of North Carolina Cooperative Extension will host a Blueberry Winter Pruning & Production Field Day in Banner Elk (Watauga Co.), NC on Friday, February23, 2018, from 2:00 PM – 5:00 PM. Northern Highbush Blueberries are a healthful and potentially profitable specialty crop that thrives in the NC High Country climate.They prosper in acidic soils common to this region, and can be managed with fairly minimal winter pruning and spring mulching as the primary maintenance tasks. This workshop will inform current and potential blueberry growers when and how to perform these tasks and keep blueberry bushes productive throughout their many-decade life spans.

This pruning workshop is free and open to the public.Pre-registration is not required, but more information and any updates due to possible extreme weather are available from the Cooperative Extension office at 828-264-3061.
