Blueberry plants need a very acidic soil in order to thrive. You'll want to test or soil or have it tested so you'll know the current pH. If it is above 6.0 you'll need to side dress with peat moss and feed with an acidified fertilizer (such as Miracid). This will help the leaves green up. (Blueberries prefer a soil pH of 4.5 to 5.0)
