Should I repot my blueberries or wait

I have a couple questions about repotting blueberries.

1. I just bought some blueberries from Home Depot in little 1gal-ish containers. But the plants are flowering and fruiting now. Should I put them in a larger pot or wait till the end of season.

2. I bought a pot 15 in wide, can I put two plants in one pot, at least for the season while they are small.

The varieries are sunshine blue, biloxi, and pink lemonade. Sometimes the pink lemonade gets knocked over in the wind. Thats why I was thinking of moving them to larger pots but dont want to ruin the crop.

RE: Should I repot my blueberries or wait

Best thing would be to repot them and remove all the flowers to let them grow, I know that is not what you wanted to hear.....or remove 90% of the fruit so you can still have a taste and repot them. Bigger the pot the one to a pot. If you put two in a pot temporarily all that happens is the roots get co-mingled and when you try to separate them you just damage them doing the separation.
