Bluberry bush healthy - won't grow!

I have a cute little blueberry bush - it's a jubilee highbush, which does not get huge, but is it a VERY slow grower? It filled out a little when i planted it last year. It had several blueberries this year (very tasty!) but it's still little! i assume they put out new growth in the spring like most plants? Thanks for any thoughts.

Blueberries need three primary things to grow rapidly. Moist but not soaking wet, plenty of nitrogen, and proper pH. My first suggestion is frequent feeding with a high nitrogen fertilizer for acid loving plants. Do that and if pH is right the plant will likely take off in about 4 weeks.

I was going to ask about Jubilee.I'm glad to hear they taste good.
There is a local nursery I visited last weekend,that has nice looking plants,lush foliage and loaded with green berries.
What's been the fertilizer? Brady
