this year one of my blueberry plant/bushes has died it was 4 years old. I grow them in large terracotta pots and feed them ericaceous food every month. is this to be expected
or should they live longer



I have moved my blueberry bushes out of pots in to my raised bed and growing much better out of the pot .

And they are enjoying all this rain .

Unless they were pot bound John.

Out of interest, why is tap water bad for them Snoopdog? (Sorry to jump in your question John!)

Ah, I'm guessing tap water affects the acidity? Thanks for pointing this out, I got my first blueberry bush this year and although I've put it in ericaceous compost I'd not realised about the tap water. I will be collecting rainwater for it from now on :)
