The important part of the mix is two things. Ammonium Sulfate, rather than Ammonium Nitrate- Blueberries are very sensitive to nitrates, and using any fertilizers with nitrates will result in discolored plants, and eventual death.

The pH must be a little on the acidic side as well- Blueberries don't really like neutral to alkaline soil.

The good news is that Ammonium Sulfate will lower the pH of your mix. You, sort of, kill two birds with one stone.
