Blueberry bushes need help

Asked June 18, 2014, 3:02 PM EDT

This is the 4th year for my top hat blueberry bushes, they previously produced a lot of berries now this year seem dead. I gave them holly tone as usual and they are in large pots. Not sure if I should have pruned them or if something is going on in the area. Please help

Hi, if the plants have not leafed out by now they are probably dead. This past winter was especially hard on potted plants. With the windy arctic conditions many people lost plants. Blueberries are hardy in our area but with the harsh winter weather and being in pots, chances are they did not survive. Regards
