Blueberry Leaves Turning Black
I have two O'Neal blueberry plants in the ground, planted over a year ago, and one has leaves turning black and some of the branches are turning brown\yellow. I believe the branch discoloration is likely due to sunburn due to lack of leaves, but I'm not sure about the leaves turning black. Is there a chance this is due to a lack of water?
The plants get a little morning shade but full afternoon sun - in Ventura county, inland.
I'm hoping the pictures post ok - even though they are slightly out of focus.
Just in case it doesn't work, here are the URL's
