scrothed leaves on pink lemonade blueberry bush

Asked August 25, 2016, 2:35 PM EDT

the pink lemonade blueberry bush was in sunny spot, produced berries, soil was moist and the leaves began to look scorched/burned. It is in a large container and I moved it to covered porch. Do I need to prune it or amend the soil?

The scorched leaves are probably due to the extremely dry and hot weather we had a few weeks ago. Now that we are cooling down a little it should be okay. As far as making soil amendments, I would say probably not since it was doing okay before all the hot weather. I think that the climate change will help more than anything. Just keep an eye on it and if it doesn't start looking better, then we can look at other alternatives.
