I have 30+ plants that are about 6 years old and have not produced much so far. Any advise would be helpful. Thank you.

    Blueberries love acidic soil. I live where they grow wild and they grow where the pine trees grow. You can buy a fertilizer or add sphagnum peat to raise the acidity or lightly mulch with pine needles if you can get them.

    Go to a gardening store and ask for acid fertilizers such as rhododendron or azalea formulations. Avoid manures.

    Ammonium sulfate,however feeding should be done in late winter or early spring.
