Blueberries shriveled?


I have a row of Blueberry bushes in pots. 
This one's probably about 3 years old.
I don't know what variety.

All the other pots have berries forming but this one seems to have an issue. 

It's been watered as much as the rest over the hot days.

Any ideas what's caused this?

    There are two things here. There are the flower heads which have turned brown and are hanging from their stalks. If you look carefully, you will probably see that there is an immature blueberry lurking inside the brown petals.

    And then there are the completely blackened little groups of buds along the length of the stems. I have some of those too. I don’t know what causes it, but I just rub them off and forget about them.
    Apophthegm -  a big word for a small thought.
    If you live in Derbyshire, as I do.

    To basics,I would say that the pots are too small for the size of the plants,they need an enormous amount of water in pots.
