Q.Blueberry Flower:what Happened-?!

Zone Mountain view, ca | Mediack added on May 15, 2021 | Answered

The blueberry was flowering beautifully. Then a few days later, it looked like the second photo where the leaves were brown. Are the flowers dying? Watering enough (soil moist). And good drainage Full sun for 8 to 10 hrs a day. Warm to hot. Direct sun. May get between 50s during the evening to 70-85 f during heat time What shall I do? I read that the plants like acidic soil .so I just added coffee ground a few days ago. Any advice would be really appreciated. Shall I just keep doing what I’m doing? Will these brown flower pedals bear fruit?

It would seem that, either, the flowers have been pollinated, or were stressed from the move. If after a week or so you do not see any fruit forming, then you can assume that the plant was stressed.

Blueberries require very special care in container. They will not tolerate most plant foods, so it will be best to use one meant for blueberries. Nitrates will kill a blueberry, quickly.

Make sure that the soil has a chance to dry out, thoroughly, down to about 2 or 3 inches between waterings.
