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.
Here are some articles that will help:
We bought 5 different varieties over 4 years ago.... they are only 1-1 1/2 ft tall. Any idea what it could be? Noticed spotting on the leaves.
You need to read this article first:
and then, perhaps, this one: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/fruits/blueberries/blueberry-fertilizer.htm
I also decided to include a link to a series of blueberry articles, since you have several different varieties.
A couple of my blueberry bushes (next to each other) have a few canes that look diseased. They are abnormally colored and spotted (as in pictures). After fruiting season began last summer, I noticed some canes on these plants had something like webbing and tiny bugs all over the cane and leaves. I'm not sure if this is related. Does my plant have a disease? Should I cut out these canes, even if they are loaded with blossoms? Thank you for your time!
I would treat it for the insects. Since you mention webbing, I think of mites, but they are usually too small to see, so you may have two kinds of bugs. It could be aphids or even scale.
If I dropped blueberries on the ground in the woods would it be possible for them to turn into growing bushes?
Probably not. The seeds wouldn't be mature yet. Birds are usually responsible for the seed dispersal and very few of the seeds are viable. Blueberry shrubs are more likely to spread by low branches rooting into the soil, by root suckers, or new shoots from the base.
I have planted 2 blueberry plants this year. However they seem to be forming red spots and rust colored leaves recently. I planted the blueberry bushes in Calloway's Premium Tree and Shrub Soil (https://www.calloways.com/calloways-premium-tree-shrub-garden-soil). I also added some Azalea tone fertilizer to the mix. They were doing good for around a month and over the past week they have deteriorated. I'm guessing my soil isn't correct for blueberrys. However I went with that particular soil because that's what I was told to do at Calloways. Any insight would be greatly appreciated? I would like to replant some more blueberry bushes but want to make sure I have a better approach this time.
This looks more like infection from overwatering at the beginning. It is a good idea to keep them moist at the beginning, but they need to dry out just a little between waterings.
I would treat with a fungicide, and make sure to let the soil dry out, completely, down to 3 or 4 inches between waterings. Here are some articles that will help:
Another thing to consider will be the type of plant that you have. Some will not tolerate the heat, very well. There are a few that are meant for warm climates, though. This article will help:
SIZE OF HOLE, PROPER PH, PROXIMITY TO OTHER BLUEBERRY BUSHES, WATERING NEEDS, ?THANKS!
That is going to depend on the cultivar that you select, but here is an article that will give you, general, care guidelines:
Does this prevent growth - are they weeds and how do I treat them
Many cultivars will have a tinge of color to the flowers. Many will be white as well. Just be sure that you are feeding it correctly, as using any fertilizers containing nitrates (Like MiracleGro) will be a death sentence to the plant.
Ammonium sulfate will be what blueberries will want, rather than ammonium nitrate. Look for this, or just use a fertilizer that is already blended for blueberries. Here is an article that will help:
