Having acidic soils is a must. They naturally grow at the edge of a coniferous forest after a forest fire or clear cutting. They like sunny areas, but can tolerate partial shade as long as they still get adequate sun.
If your soil is not very acidic, then you will need to bring in some acidic soil as the blueberries will not thrive. Some people think that throwing some pine needles on the ground around the plant will not make your soil acidic. It not possible to make your non acidic soil acidic with additives. You need to have acidic soil in the first place.
I have 11 blueberry plants that I planted at the edge of our wild blueberry patch which is along the edge of a coniferous forest.
Since the birds love pecking at blueberries, you will need to net them when they start to ripen otherwise, there might not be much left for you and the once that are left will probably have peck holes in them.
