Blueberry Bush Diseases or Pests?


Anonymous added on June 4, 2011 | Answered

We planted blueberries this spring. Three different varieties, early, mid and late. A lot of blooms and berries are now forming, but the leaves on two of the plants are turning brown and shriveling up, as though they are very dry. What could be causing this and what might the remedy be?

It could be due to the pH of your soil. Blueberries like low soil pH; otherwise, the roots become blocked and the plant cannot take in any moisture or nutrients and will quietly wither and die.
