Answer: It sounds like something interfered with the roots of your Blue Crop, causing it to wilt and not recover. If there are no new green sprouts from the lower trunk, or even the suggestion of swelling buds, the plant probably is gone beyond hope. Dig it up and see if there's any evidence of root disturbance or disease (broken roots, chewed roots, knobs or cankers, animal tunnels, etc.). The only other thing that may be involved is poor drainage. If that one bush is in the low spot, or if an underground water pipe is leaking in that area, the blueberry's fragile roots may have been drowned by excess moisture. They need frequent moisture, but if it puddles around the roots, the bush will die. I hope you find the cause and can avoid the problem with the replacement!
