Q.Blueberry Plants

Zone Plymouth, 55447 | Lindavince added on August 23, 2023 | Answered

Hello, We have a few blueberry bushes and they don’t look well. We tried to diagnose the problem ourselves but we’re confused. One plant had red vein, another had green vein but red in-between veins and finally another one with brown edges that’s drying up. This has been happening this entire year. We’re wondering if there’s a single kind of nutrients deficiency that could explain it all or is each blueberry plant having a different deficiency? Thanks for your help. Linda

I would, first, check the pH and soil nutrient levels. Blueberries like it a little on the acidic side. These articles will help:



If the soil remains moist, consistently, this could be an issue as well. There needs to be a little time to dry out between watering. You can check with your finger, down to a few inches, or a meter.
