    Those aren't blueberry leaves, they are some kind of ribes (currant), probably blackcurrant.  Currants don't like ericaceous soil and don't do well in pots.  I would plant them in the ground and keep them well watered until the leaves fall in autumn.

    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.

    I would think part shade if you are growing them in Spain and keeping them well watered will be essential - blackcurrants will not tolerate drought.  Good luck and let us know how you get on. image
