|You're right - the leaves should be a deep glossy green so I think your plants are struggling. Blueberries like acidic soils so test your soil with a home kit or have it tested. It should measure 4.5 to 5.0 If the soil pH is higher than that, your plants will struggle. After harvesting your blueberries you can trim the plants back to encourage thick, dense growth and lots of healthy new leaves. Best wishes with your plants!
