Blueberry Bush

Anonymous added on April 30, 2014 | Answered

Our blueberry bushes that we have had for over 17 years have dried up dead branches within the live bush. Also, they do not have berries on them yet and usually by now they would. Do you know what this is?

Blueberry bushes generally live 15-20 years. It may be that your blueberries are dying of old age. You may be able to revive them for a time by thinning out the dead branches. It may also be a fungus. Treat the plant with a fungicide to take care of any potential fungi that may be affecting the plant.
