Here is some great info on blueberries from our local fruit farm, http://www.lecoteau.com/Blueberries.pdf

Long answer...
Blueberries like acid fertilizers such as Rhodo or Azalea
formulations. For newly planted stock, use 2 tablespoons of
10-20-10 (or similar fertilizer) in late spring or once plants are established. (Careful! Blueberries are very sensitive to over fertilization!) For subsequent years, use 1 ounce of fertilizer for each year from planting to a total of 250ml (8 oz.) per plant.
Apply in early spring and again in late spring for best results. Always water well after fertilizing. For organic fertilizers, blood meal and cottonseed meal work
well. Avoid using fresh manures.
