Have two newly planted blueberry Bush. Started the leaves turning brown on tip. Some darker brown it has spread on both plants. I just used a pot one drainage hole and stranded poting mix. Haven't added fertiliser part from seaweed mix.

Fruit and Citrus • Physical Damage

Blueberries enjoy regular watering, but can sometimes display browning leaves when they are over, or under, watered. Ensure the pots are in a bright, sunny spot, and make sure that the pot is freely draining when you water (look out for excess water coming out of the bottom). If the potting mix is drying quickly, you may consider mulching around the pot to reduce evaporation.  

Finally too, Blueberries enjoy acidic soils to grow in. A regular potting mix may have a pH slightly too alkaline for them. Consider using 'Yates Soil Acidifier Liquid Sulfur' to keep the pH of your potting mix more acidic. You might also like to consider a weekly feed with 'Yates Thrive Strawberry & Berry Fruit Liquid Plant Food'.
