Blackberry and blueberry bush diseases?
First, there's been tons of rain here in past few days.
On the blackberry leaf: pest or fungus? See also the dead leaves on blackberry branch. Otherwise, the bush is as vibrant as ever. But I'd like to treat this fast, depending on what it is.
Blueberry bushes are new--put in this April. They are bearing, but parts of them are dying, it looks like. What's with the aged-looking bark? What do these bushes need? They are mulched with a high-grade brown landscape mulch, but were planted by a guy who grew up on a farm and is into organic gardening, so I trusted him.
If anyone can tell me what may be going on with either the blackberry or blueberry bushes, I'd be grateful.
