Blueberries and virus, but which?

Hi, I'm rather new to blueberry growing. We got 3 plants last year from a nursery and added another one this year. We used ericaceous soil, I added some blueberry feed this spring as well. It started all well, with lots of flowers, but we started noticing that the tops of the branches were drying out together with the berries. It has also affected the new plant which has tons of flowers. Not sure what to do? Have googled but no wiser. Is this a virus or some sort of canker? Do we cut the dry bits off and hope it doesn't spread or do we need to get some chemicals? I'm an organic gardener so would rather avoid chemicals but if cannot avoid it.. Thank you in advance!
