Hi, my new blueberry has two tall new stems growing from the base. Should I remove them?

I understand that the stems could be growing from the root stock if any. The older more mature section of plant is flowering whereas the tall new stems are not. Also, what Yates product do you suggest for care of blueberry?

Fruit and Citrus • Plants

Thank you for contacting Yates. 

The tall shoots doesn't look like suckers, it is common to see some strong growth if the plant is healthy and thrives in the position. 

To feed, try every 6-8 weeks with 'Yates Thrive Natural Citrus & Fruit Organic Based Pelletised Plant Food' as a complete, soil-conditioning fertiliser for richer, juicier and more abundant fruit and healthy plant growth. Click here for more info on this product:

Hope this helps and happy gardening :)
