Blueberry Plant

Asked July 21, 2016, 10:23 AM EDT

I planted a blueberry plant in a garden bed in the front. The plant gets full sun from about noon to when the sun goes down. It's also at the base of the gutter from the roof so when it rains, it gets extra water. I planted in back in early to mid June and it has not grown at all. In fact, the top is starting to brown. Any advice? Thank you in advance

Your blueberry is undoubtedly still suffering from transplant shock. The top is probably turning brown due to insufficient water. Keep it well watered when there is not an inch of rain in a week. You might check the soil pH since blueberries like acid soil. http://extension.umd.edu/growit/fruit-profiles/blueberries vw
