my blueberry only flowers on about 1/4 of the plant. Why is the rest so unproductive?

pic2 = two fruiting stems

There could be a few reasons why your blueberry plant is only flowering on 1/4 of the plant:

Age: Blueberry plants typically take about three years to reach maturity and produce a full crop. If your plant is young, it may not be fully mature yet.

Pruning: Blueberry plants require proper pruning to encourage even growth and fruiting. If the plant is not pruned correctly, it may develop uneven growth and produce less fruit.

Light: Blueberry plants require full sun to produce an abundant crop. If your plant is not receiving enough sunlight, it may only produce fruit on the parts of the plant that are receiving enough light.

Soil pH: Blueberry plants require acidic soil with a pH between 4.0 and 5.0. If the soil is too alkaline, the plant may not produce fruit evenly.

It's best to assess the above factors and take appropriate action to ensure that your blueberry plant produces an abundant crop. SkyWard Alpine
