Blueberries traumatized by freezes after fruit set
A few varieties of my highbush BBs have hundreds of berries but very little leaf cover. We have not had a tornado-though it seems we did. Have never seen this before and am thinking of pruning the bushes severely and stripping off any remaining berries. A few varieties have leaf tip burn.
Has anyone had a similar response this year or ever? The grapes leaves were all burned off by the freeze, but they are now regrowing. No evidence that the BBs are doing the same.
The bushes that tolerated the brunt of the southwest freezing winds are among the least affected. None of these were covered with anything.
