Blueberry spray? Mildew &amp; flowering

    2 responses

Brad starts with ...
My sharpe and misty have already started to flower. Anyone else finding this in Perth this winter?

My pots are in a spot without early morning sun so there's also White powdery mildew. I've had lime sulfur and copper sprays out in autumn / winter but I can't remember what these got and when. Should I spray? I took all the fruit off last year as the plants are young so I could remove or not worry about these flowers but I'd like to get some tasters

My other variety : northland looks like brown twigs. Not sure it will come good

Hi Brad,
I think I am a raspberry and blueberry killer ... mine are not happy (despite pots of proper mix). But like you, my blueberries are a bit confused. One is a twig, another is a deep red, and a third had decided it is time to bloom! All the same type too! Fortunately no mildew - but very confused plants that haven't increased in size for 12 months (so if you've got the 'touch' and are interested in saving them ... let me know).
Good luck with the mildew

There's a huge thread here on blueberries. Lots of advice in it. I'm not sure whether I've missed the mildew control boat now mine are in flower or if spray will be ok. I'm the blueberry newbie - started mine last summer.
