Are these blue berry plants diseased?

I have a southern highbush Oneil , and a Bountiful Blue blue berry plant i recently bought from a nursery. I transferred them to bigger pots from their nursery containers a month ago using hydrangea mix as well as general potting soil. I have also given them a bit of Espoma brand soil acidifier to lower the ph of the soil.

The soil drains well and i only water them about once a week. There are no bugs present as far as i can tell.

After the first week of transferring them the leaves began changing, curling, turning red, and shriveling. The stems of both plants have had a mild red or pronounced red color besides the woodiness. I believe they are about 2-3 year old plants. Both plants have leaves that have started to fall off on their own or are very loose on the stem. I am worried because the leaves look similar to pictures of Root Rot and Bacterial Scorch taht ive seen on the internet.

The first image is the oneil and the second is the bountiful blue

Why promote RoundUp?

I was appalled to read an expert's response that included the use of RoundUp. Do your research. Just because the product is still sold in stores doesn't mean it is safe. Gardening must include respect for our natural world, our Earth. RoundUp is an incredibly dangerous product, for humans, beasts, and beneficial and necessary insects. You don't have to poo-poo RoundUp, just avoid writing about it.

Fall corn gluten application

I applied corn gluten in the spring as a crab grass prevention. I understand this will take a few years. I understand it is to be applied in August and October. When in August and October? Should the soil be a certain temperature when this is done? We live in St. Paul. Also, in another area, where corn gluten will not be applied, we will be seeding the lawn. When should this be done in St. Paul? Thanks. Cathay Hoven

Grotrax grass seed blanket product

Is this product, available on line and at big box stores, useful for growing grass in areas where it has been hard to grow grass? Is it too late in the year to try it? If we purchase some now would it be good to use next spring if we didn’t put it down yet this year?

Oak wilt

My parents have an acre of land and about half of it is filled with mature oaks that despite their efforts to save, have all become infected with oak wilt. What options are there for disposing of all that wood? Thank you Lisa
