Blueberry Bush Infected?

apeachgMay 23, 2013

The leaves of my blueberry bush are turning brown with reddish borders. Is this bacterial leaf scorch, and if so, what can I do about it?

If it is bacterial leaf scorch, there don't appear to be any readily available remedies. Out of curiosity, what variety is this? How rapidly is the damage progressing? Where did you buy it? Do you have any other blueberries?

I've got one that looks like that. I think I forgot to water it a couple times.

My blueberries did that last year when it was very very hot and dry in spite of watering them frequently.

I do not think they are under watered, they get watered every morning. It is not very hot here either. I believe it might be a sharpblue, but not sure - have a misty nearby doing fine.

Short of water.
If you haven't yet mulched, do so.
To verify soil is moist enough, stick a trowel in it and look.
