I planted two blueberries two weeks ago, they got some suntan at the very beginning, most leaves burned.

one seems fine, another one seems dead, can any one tell me is it dead or it will have some shoot when the day become worm?

thanks.

I don't know. I would leave it and wait and see...water if the soil is dry...

Sounds like the leaves were burnt from frost

Blueberries every where in NS

The leaves are not on ours yet

So I suspect your will leaf out again

laopi...they love acidity, had some years ago that flourished underneath many scotch firs and pines. Grab some of those needles at this time that lay about, if not in your yard but perhaps a neighbor who likes to throw them away. :) They do not like real rich soil, unless you are growing the domestic type. Mine were the wild ones, that self seeded naturally. :) Happy Gardening

I think you are right.

Thanks, I use two parts peat moss and one part top soil, I think it's fine.
