Hello, brand new to this site!
I bought these honeyberry plants early summer and they're not doing too well. they went through a hot summer and I watered them pretty frequently. I'm not sure if I over watered them or underwater. It's clayish soil, a test said 4.3% organic matter, but I couldn't make pottery with it. I put composted cow manure in before I planted them and then a few months later I took out the manure and mixed it with more native soil to see if it was root burn. I haven't watered them much lately since it's not as hot and to test if I was over watering, the soil doesn't and hasn't every felt too dry or too wet. the plants still look the same as a few months ago. it this a fungus, disease, sun burn, over/underwatering, or something I don't know about? There hasn't been any new growth either! They look way worse in real life and seem to be holding on by a thread. can anyone help me please?!?

They need acid soil. Manure may make it too alkaline for them. You could try a fertilizer made for acid loving plants.
