Dose anyone know about blue berry bushes?

North Carolina, United States Us

please help... My blue berry bush is sick! ... it was root bound and had not been wattered for a fyew days when I got it. I re-planted it in a mix of virgen soil, potting soil, and plant food, I have keped it well wattered, and it;s still trying to die on me... It's branches are turning brown, and the leaves are brown and leathery. what can I do to save it? and will it come back next year if it fails this year?




You could try cutting it back a bit, but if the woody stems are dead, then its an ex blueberry I'm afraid. Did you tease out the rootball before you replanted - if not, that might be worth a try - this will encourage root growth and spread.
