Part of blueberry plant appears dead
Just in the last week, part of my Sweetcrisp blueberry plant appears to have died. All the leaves on one stem have shriveled and started to dry. The rest had appeared unaffected and I was planning to cut out the damaged section. But, today I noticed that one of the lower branches of the seemingly healthy part has started to droop. I checked and there still seems to be sufficient water- I've been watering it once to twice a week this winter. I've given the same treatment to another Sweetcrisp in a different room and it seems fine. I brought both plants into the house in December, after they had reached (and exceeded by a bit) their required chill hours, but before the weather got too cold.
Any ideas on what is killing this plant? Is the best course to just cut out the affected parts, or is there something else I can do?
