Blueberry plant cuttings

Good Morning All
I bought 2 blueberry plants last autumn. Can I take cuttings from these plants, dies age matter or should I buy a couple more different blueberry plants?

    I grew a blueberry bush from a “cutting”. Actually, it was a stem that got twirled round and blown off in an autumn gale. It had been a nice new growth put out in the summer. I was cheesed off, to say the least. (Should have supported it more carefully as it was growing, lazy b*****). Anyway, I chopped it off at about 8” from the “cut” end and jammed it into some ericaceous compost mixed with soil. It took. Hooray!

    I’d say your plants are a bit on the young side to be pinching bits off them. Give them another year or two.
