Potted Fruit Problem

Peachtree City, GA(Zone 8a)

My Persimmons and one blueberry and 1 blackberry bush has drooping leaves. We have had tons of rain for weeks now. Could too much water cause this? The first 2 are persimmons and the 3rd is blackberry.

I went out about 8:00 this morning and the leaves looked OK. I went out about 2:00 and they were drooping again. It must be the sun. I moved them this year to more sun and I guess they don't like it, although the one planted in the ground looks good throughout the day.

Plants in pots during hot periods can be water stressed (dry out quickly) and temperature stressed (heat up quickly). A plant with roots in the ground do not experience as much temperature variation in a day as plant roots in a pot do.

Could be that.
