What happened to my blueberry bush

Not sure what to my two of blueberry bushes, all of a sudden they look like they're dead. I've been watering them about twice a week. Does it have some kind of disease or something? What should I do to revive the bush?

Thanks for any advice.

They got dry or were given a big dose of fertilizer or both. I have seen similar from bushes given Muriate of potash also.

Scuzzy,

They can't take being dry even for hours...the result is what you see in the picture. In some climates they require watering daily or even twice a day. If the pot is in the sun you can imagine how hot the pot and soil inside get. If you keep it moist it should recover. You could put it in a much larger pot which would help keep the roots cooler and it would dry out slower. If the pot is not plack that helps..even just spray paining the pot would help..wrapping it in foil also works. Personally I would put it in a much larger pot.
