Blueberry flower buds in autumn

    5 responses

MatthewT starts with ...
Hello, today I found that my blueberry has grown a lot of small flower buds. It has been growing heaps of new shoots for the past 2 months but now starting new flower buds. Is it normal to happen in autumn? I thought this could only happen in spring... Thank you

Hi MatthewT,

Those flowers will fall off soon as winter is coming. If you just bought it from the nurseries, yes it may have flowers as it has been grown in the warmer state i.e QLD. However, after one year in Melbourne it only flowers in early Summer. Cheers

Hi Matt T

Due to the unseasonably warm autumn weather in Melbourne recently I wouldn't be surprised if some bushes and even fruit trees will be tricked into flowering earlier than usual. Just protect your plants from the incoming frost during winter if you have any in your area.

Happy gardening :-)

What type? Evergreen like Burst? They do that but wont show flowers till late winter to spring - caused by our indian summer.
