Blueberries are naturally hardy, but the roots may still require some protection during winter by wrapping the container in blankets, bubble wrap, or quilt batting. Alternatively, you could sink the container in the ground over winter by digging a large enough hole to accommodate the container (up to its rim or a couple inches). As long as the roots are protected, they should live through the winter just fine.

I think you do not need to bring it in. It's sopposed to lose all it's leaves and fruit and have bare branches. Next spring it will regrow the leaves and fruit
