Hi there,

Can people weigh in on whether you can let your trees/bushes produce fruit the first year after they've been transplanted? We put in a few berry bushes and a couple of trees last fall. The bushes are covered in flowers this spring (mainly honey berry and blueberry). It'll kill me to pinch them off, but I want the plants to be healthy and strong...

Thanks!

I see. I thought the issue was more about energy allocation (growth vs. reproduction). Thanks for enlightening me. Berries, here I come!
 
We find this kind of rampant individuality very disturbing. But not this tiny ad:
