in Fruit & veg
I have a couple of baby Blueberry bushes which I planted last Autumn, having got them literally as twigs. They're now about 12 inches tall. I was expecting them to spend the first couple of years putting down roots and getting a bit bigger. But one of them has started putting out little bunches of berries already.
I'm not sure whether I should just let the fruit grow, or if I should remove them so it can put its energy into establishing itself a bit more, i.e. like you're told to remove flowers from baby strawberry plants and not pick rhubarb in the first year.
Terrible photo I'm afraid but you can see one little bunch on the bottom left.
