This low pH is essential for fruit and leaf development.

Oct 13, Mary B. Dear Mary, It is hard to say exactly why your blueberry plants are defoliating (losing their leaves). Here are a couple of possibilities: When you scratched in the fertilizer, you may have scratched too deeply and damaged the roots or burnt the roots with the takedownshrub.pws: CAUSE: Nitrogen deficiency always affects the oldest (lowest) leaves first, because when new leaves aren't getting enough of the nutrient to sustain their growth, the plant redirects it from the existing leaves.

I have a blueberry plant that is still in the 5 gallon nursery container. Provide at least 1 inch of water per week for young plants and 1 1/2 to 3 inches of water a week for. Drooping of new leaves and shoots in Spring; rapid browning of upper surface of affected shoots and leaf midribs and veins; death of infected shoots,leaves and flowers hours after appearance of brown discoloration; after initial symptoms in Spring, plants become symptomless until fruit development; infected berries are cream or pink in color and turn tan or gray; berries become shriveled and hard; shriveled skin of fruit breaks down to expose black rind of.

It could be that your soil is draining away the water rapidly. Our blueberry shrubs are all mulched with about 6 inches of shredded maple leaves, to help retain soil moisture. One of mine is dropping berries. I'm thinking lack of pollination because the plant looks great and is growing like gang busters. Sep 21, Look for red lesions on young shoots to diagnose stem canker in your blueberry plants.

The best time to see the lesions is in fall or winter, after the leaves fall off. Diagnose the fungal disease twig or stem blight by inspecting your blueberry plant for infected, dead twigs that rapidly die back up to 6 inches from the tip. Plant part: Flower. Description: The corolla tubes are falling off the flowers, revealing small green fruit.

This is the most vulnerable stage to freeze injury. Damage can occur at 32⁰F (0⁰C). Early green fruit: Late green fruit: Shoot tip set; end of shoot growth: Fruit coloring: Plant part: Flower. Description: Small green berries are expanding. Fruit in the cluster varies from large to small pea-sized.

May 29, They are easy to grow once you get the soil and water right, but if they have a problem they let you know! Some of my blueberries have begun to exhibit classic signs of iron chlorosis, that is iron deficiency.

Blueberries grow best in well-drained soils with a pH between 4.

A blueberry with iron deficiency has yellowing leaves with dark green veins, the new growth will be affected by this first. Now, before you run off and bury iron nails next to your blueberry bushes one of the biggest culprits of this problem isn't that the soil doesn't have enough iron.
