    So long as you can isolate the blueberry compost from the surrounding soil and rain runoff you should be ok.
    Good luck!

    Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit.
    Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.

    When is a good time to refresh the ericaceous in containers?

    I was thinking of doing it autumn when I move them, but I guess the nutrients will be counter productive until spring.

    Yes, you can do it anytime while it's still relatively warm. They'll be happier once they're in the right compost.
    If you feed them once a month between March and Sept with an ericaceous (azalea) feed they'll get all the nutrients they need.
    They don't need much in the way of fertilizers
    Good luck
