Blueberry blossom rot

I need some help. I am new to gardening and my blueberry bushes all have blossom rot. Is there anyone can suggest that I can do to fix them or are they doomed.

Re: Blueberry blossom rot

Sometimes too much watering could be the problem. This is my best guess. Check that you aren't watering them top much.

Re: Blueberry blossom rot

Have you had a lot of rain and damp weather?
Botrytis will cause damping off of blossoms in such conditions,
Sprays of fungicide bre-bloom can help to remove the danger in future years.
