Blueberry question

Posted by fendereh Pa (My Page) on

I'm wondering if this blueberry is salvageable?
Just a few days ago it started to brown and wilt. The plant was transplanted to a raised bed from its pot about 6 weeks ago. The bed consists of sand peat moss and some native soil. I have 2 plants that look like this and 15 others that look fine! Any thoughts?

I forgot to mention that we had some frost a few days ago

RE: Blueberry question

Frost didn't do that. Did you fertilize them or do anything but plant them? Did they get dry.......or get dry then were fertilized? They look fried. Not sure if they will come back.

RE: Blueberry question

When they were planted I put some slow released sulfur down. That's it

RE: Blueberry question

Generally, people do not get to the root of the problem (literally). Probe, and make sure your roots are damp. Never let anything dry out after transplanting. It may come back. goodluck
