Water not tested yet but it's a deep well and surely hard water. Losing battle acidifying water and watering by hand. Like to put in an irrigation system in a couple beds. Better to water with the hard water, or have plants get way to dry??? These are newly establishing plants. Will be transplanting these 12 bushes in the fall to better soil (peat/pine bark fines), so should be fairly acidic but how much would hard water drip irrigation raise or effect ph
I have several blueberry bushes and I largely ignored pruning them for several years. The time finally arrived and I pruned several of them last year. All but one had numerous canes of varying ages. However, one plant has a single large "trunk", bigger than my wrist. A foot or so up it splits into several branches. I pruned off a large, problematic branch last year and was rewarded with new growth in the vicinity of the cut, but not new canes coming up from the ground. How would I go about pruning this...tree?
Why do my blueberries fall off the plant before ripening. I have three different types .

Picking Our blueberries the ones that are almost ripe are falling off as we are picking them. This has never happened before when we picked the berries from past years.
My pear tree was loaded with pears and by mid June all the fruit has fallen off. What happened, is there something we can do to guarantee fruit sets?

Hello, I have a blueberry bush planted in my backyard, it’s a few years old. I noticed today two weird hard growths on one of the plant. A hard, Greyish, lump and one is covered with holes. Any idea what these could be?
I have mulched my small 8 blueberry bushes w cut grass from grass catcher on mower. I am wanting to overlay that w “hardwood mulch” just for aesthetics-but I’m not sure if this is bad for the blueberries or will it not stunt or harm them?
I have a new plant as of a month ago. I put it in a pot with good soil I thought. It grew 5 leaves on a stem but I accidentally broke it off. The mail stem leaves only 5 have started turning a little yellow /green with green veins. I want it to grow. What am I doing wrong? How often in a pot should you water. I thought every 3 days. Need expert advise please.

Our wild blueberries form then turn white, shrink a bit then fall off the bush. We use to have healthy berries and an abundant crop each year.
