Blueberry flower buds in autumn - 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.

Blueberry flower buds in autumn - Hi MatthewT, Those flowers will fall off soon as winter is coming.

Blackberry primocane or flurocane - Hi Matt I would consider your blackberry canes floricanes which means they will flower and fruit after one year as opposed to primocane which flower and fruit in the same year.
