Jim, I suspect your local berries may have the appropriate mycorhizzae. These fungal associates can allow plants to thrive in conditions that would kill them otherwise. You should feel lucky, those particular fungi are very specific to blueberries and are very difficult to get initiated.

Subject: [NAFEX] Blueberries in pH 7.2

    It was probably a couple of years ago that I mentioned that, when I 
moved here, there were wild blueberries growing here.  That startled me 
because the soil pH was 7.2 and the top soil contained calcite.  I haven't 
had the time, nor the desire to try to figure out why.
