Pruning error

I’m in need of some advice. Yesterday I pruned my blueberries having never done it before I became secateur happy. I cut it right back and took some off the top like raspberry canes. 😊 Didnt realise I wasn’t suppose to, now I’m worried they won’t grow. Advice needed pls.

    I'm sure they'll grow, but you may have snipped off stems that would have had berries  this year.
    On the plus side your pruning should encourage strong new shoots to pop up from the crown

    Some info here from the RHS
    Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit.
    Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.

    There are some very good videos on line on how to  prune Blueberries and at what time of year,I have used them a lot when I am stuck.
