when do blueberries bud?

Grass is green, all the fruit trees are silver tip or more.

I planted a dozen blueberries last year and so far no evidence of budding. I'm starting to wonder if they made it thru the winter.

do blueberries usually bud well after the fruit trees?

thx. in advance for help.

RE: when do blueberries bud?

That depends. I overwintered my container blueberries in the garage this year, and because of the warm winter they budded over a month ago. Now they have leaves and they are flowering. Others who had theirs in the ground or overwintered them outdoors, were a month later than mine.

RE: when do blueberries bud?

It all depends. I have a customer who has an old blueberry bush that had little flowers opening all over it last friday(DE).

My Rabbiteye has just started opening its leaves in the last 2 weeks or so. They are not nearly fully open yet though, and some are still just buds.(DE)

In zone 4, you should be well behind us, and you may not even have full formed leaf buds yet. I'd give it time.
