They can stay in for quite a while.  However, they are best lifted and covered in dry sand.  They wont grow any more though

Can't add much to that advice.  my pruning consists though of removing weak, spindly wood and the odd older growth back to the base occasionally.  Oh, and net against the birds.  My huge crop was largely taken by a solitary blackbird because I neglected to net in time.  

The best supplier of blueberries is Trehanes, the Dorset Blueberry company.  Large range and great advice and currantly....get it?, currant ly .......they are offering 20% off

Wet earlier but beautifully sunny and warm now.  Will get a few more wallflowers in....they are pretty big now.  

Well done Jo for speaking out.  

Not seeing avatars now for some reason...thought forum was being upgraded

Address the hardpan Tetley to create something really good there. You will always regret the "cheat" I think.   I would regard this as a winter job rather than wait until spring.  Then you can plant whatever you want without compromise.

no I would just keep it dry but water lightly early in spring to try for an early start
