What special care does it take to grow blueberries?

I have two blueberry plants. When I went to the green house to buy

them, they told me that I would need 2 blueberry plants so they

could cross pollinate each other and would be able to produce

blueberries. I planted them close together, the first year they did

not produce a lot of blueberries, but that is normal, but each year

that passes by they produce more and more blueberries. In the fall

time, you need to let the leaves that fall near them to stay near

the plant, to protect them from the winter weather. In the spring

after the last hard frost, you need to remove the leaves from

around them. Now to keep birds from eating your blueberries, the

lady that worked at the green house said that I should place some

old CD's in the ground near the plants. The birds can't stand the

bright light that is given off by the CD's. I have never had any

birds eat my blueberries.

you also need to watch the pH, blueberrys need a very acid

soil.
