If you could post a picture or two, that would be helpful. Just hit reply again and click on the upload attachment tab below the reply box and follow the directions.

This could just be an environmental problem due to soil moisture conditions (too much or too little water), soil pH not low enough (blueberries prefer a pH of 4.5 - 5.5), or even a heat related problem. It may not be disease or insect related. We may be able to determine this better with a photo. Thanks.
