Answer: Based on your description I am not certain what is happening to your blueberries but it is possible they are suffering from being over or under watered. The soil should be evenly moist like a wrung out sponge, not sopping wet and not dried out. To know if you need to water, dig into the soil with your finger. If it is still damp, do not water yet. When you water, apply it slowly and thoroughly so it soaks down to the roots. You might try mulching with an organic mulch such as pine fines, this will help keep the soil more evenly moist and also help feed the soil as it breaks down slowly over time. The soil where they are planted should be organic and humusy, and have an acidic pH just as the farmer told you. Your local county extension should be able to help you with checking the soil. Please check directly with your local store about returns. Good luck with your blueberries!
