Leaves Dried & Fell Off Blueberry Plant
I have a blueberry plant that is still in the 5 gallon nursery container. It produced a few berries over the summer but recently started dropping leaves. Now, all the leaves have fallen off but the branches are still green.
The soil may have dried out last week, but only for a day before I watered it again.
Any idea what could have caused the leaves to drop - disease? water issues? Just want to know if I should prune it now or later...or throw it away.
The plant was near my raised beds where my poor tomatoes were overcome by whiteflies (I could not get a handle on them and finally had to pull the plants). I never noticed any infestation on the blueberry plant, though.
Thanks for any insight you may have.
