heck yea man i'll definitely do that. I just picked up some peat moss the other day. I'll start doing that today.

I didn't have any peat moss on hand. But I did have 2 40 pound bags of sand. I didn't use both bags but I dug up both plants and poured have the bag in each hole. Then mixed it around with the soil with a shovel. I hope this solves the problem. I also did a little research yesterday and it was suggested to pour sugar water on top of a newly transplanted plant. So I did that as well. I hope the sand added to the soil will help the draining problem. I did raise them up about 8 inches as well. *fingers crossed* thanks for the help.

I don't mind not getting blueberries this year. I just want my plants to be healthy. I didn't really expect to get many of any of the fruits I planted if any the first year of planting. Even though some of the plants are 1-3 years old. I appreciate all of y'all help. So y'all wouldn't dig them up and try to fix the soil drainage problem then replant?

Yes we had a late winter this year so I was waiting on it to stop snowing/raining and for the ground to dry out a little but we went to a local nursery and bought 2 different varieties of blueberries. How would I know if they are in shock or if they are dying? And if they are in shock do they just lose leaves/bloom for the rest of spring/summer or what should I be looking for?

Welcome to the forum!

Where are you? ( if you include your area in your signature everyone will know where your coming from)
More details in general would be nice, including pics.

Could it be a lack of water?



Central Arkansas. And definitely not a lack of water. It's been raining quite a bit lately. I'm thinking the drainage is too slow for the blueberries liking with the amount of rain that we have been getting.

Hey guys, saw some helpful info on here earlier and had decided to register to get some advice. I bought 2 blueberry bushes about a month ago. They were doing well in the pots. I planted them about 2 weeks ago and seemed to be doing well up until about 3 days ago. I've been reading up you need well drained soil and between 4-5 PH level. My soil is a little slow on draining but still drains decent and my PH is at 6. I've read they will do ok at 6 but it's recommended 4-5. Now there are a few flowers on them still but the leaves are wilting and the flowers are wilting too. I believe the bush is dying. I'd say the plant is a year or 2 old. Since it's spring and the plant was already bloomed. What would be y'all recommendation for me to do to help save the plant or is it too late? Should I uproot it and put it back in a pot with peat moss? Add some sulfate/peat moss/sand all back in the hole and replant it? I feel I need to move fast on this before the plant dies.
