Here's a couple of my first blueberry bushes which were purchased in 2009, but they are finally getting flower buds this year. November 2009.
Here's the same plant November 2010
Here are the seedlings that I started in late winter or early spring of 2010. March 27th
In another week after taking them outside, they really darkened up. 5 April, 2010

August 25, 2010. They were getting too big for the seed rack so I had to move them to the ground
In October of 2010, I purchased 13 new blueberries from Lowes at about $2 a piece since they had a year end sale, so I couldn't resist. Here's all of them with the original 4 in the front which were planted in 2009. These are much bigger and I knew they were flowering size already.
Here's the 7 in the ground.
Now to get back to 2011, it looks like most of the blueberry plants survived. The only ones that didn't make it were the small seedlings that came out of the soil during the freeze, thaw cycle, however even many of those are recovering as I applied juicy roots cloning gel to them, stuck them in pots in order to save those seedlings.
Here's a few of the seedlings coming back to life taken 27 April 2011
Here's one of the bigger one out of the 13 that were purchased on the year end sale last year. They have flower buds, but aren't loaded with them just yet, but these guys should add another foot or so in height, and really bush out this year. I'm expecting the seedlings to get up in the 1-2ft range easily since they accelerate their growth when they get bigger.
