Will my Blueberry Bush ever Grow?

About 6 years ago, I bought a blueberry bush from Wal-Mart.

We planted it and, every year, it get's green and looks really nice -

but there's never any blueberries that grow off of

the bush...

Will it ever grow, or is it 'infertile' and just get's full

and green?

Update:

there are two bushes together - so they are cross pollinating.

    You need 2 blueberry bushes for cross pollination. Does it get flowers or just stay green? If not your soil may not be acidic enough either. Add some peat moss around the bush and when you fertilize use an acidic fertilizer.

    they are slow growers but 6 years means you do not have the correct soil. make sure the ph is a bit acidic and add another bush for pollination

    Sage and Thyme both like acid soil and could be planted with Blueberries so if your sage is growing good, move the blueberry bush to that area

    Blueberry is commonly grown near pine trees where we know the soil stays acidic

    adding pine needles does not help much and is a lot of work to keep doing, better to transplant unless you don't have a pine tree, then you could use coffee grounds

    Although most blueberry bushes are labeled "self pollinated", and by nature most varieties are, they do better in a cross pollination environment and will produce bigger, better berries if they're in a cross pollination environment. If you stick with just the one bush, give it time to self pollinate and you should start to see berry production.

    Blueberries love Acid soil. Try "mulching" with pine needles to keep the soil on the acid side.

    Blueberry bushes grow quite slow, but I think you might just have the wrong soil, do some research on it! :)
