What Type of Fertilizer to Use on Blueberry Bushes?

Start using fertilizer on newly-planted blueberry bushes in late spring with 10-20-10 fertilizer (2 tablespoons). Water well afterwards. Give 1 ounce for every year after planting, up to 8 ounces per plant in the later years (i.e. 3 ounces the third year of growth, 8 ounces the eighth year and each year afterwards).
