Unhappy Blueberries

strathclyde, United Kingdom Gb

I bought several diffent types of blueberry 2 years old, i thought they might grow well in scotland as they look similiar to our wild bilberries (I havnt a clue what im doing but im keen!) I got the acid soil and put them out in pots, they looked great. I wanted to give them a plant food but dont want to use any chemicals so i bought some organic seaweed and used that, round about the same time i noticed tiny green bugs all over the new shoots so i gave them a spray with the fish oil stuff. Would you believe it ALL THE LEAVES AND FLOWERS FELL OFF! I was upset. They seem to be coming back to life this spring, any tips greatly appreciated.



Im growing Blueberries for the first time ever , I bought a plant from Poundland and David very kindly gave me one as a gift , If you go to my blog you will find info I kindly got from other people here on how to look after them , hope this helps you . Happy Gardening !
