When do next years flower buds form on bb. Can I prune some of this years growth now? I have 2 bb in containers.

I'm in 6a too, I grow in pots and in ground. Besides weak canes, i only remove branches 5 years old or older. otherwise I do not prune. In the south and west for Southern Highbush a different strategy is used.
I may thin fruit if needed.
