I have a blueberry bush which is 4 years old. Last year I had nice leaf growth but no berries.
I feed it Miracid and give it some coffee grounds.Is there something better? I have a drip system so it's getting enough water.What can I do?

Blueberries usually bear after five or six years, assuming they are healthy and growing well. The plants must bloom in order to set fruit. Usually, two varieties must be present for pollination. Finally, pruning must be done correctly in order to avoid removing blooming wood. I would suspect age is still the limiting factor as long as the other conditions are being met.
