Epsom doesn't neutralize the acid, it just adds magnesium to the soil, which helps the plant get the nitrogen, sulfur, and phosphorus it needs.
I usually add about a table spoon the hole before I put my seedling in, but some people mix it up with water and spray it. Once a month is 2 tablespoons per gallon, twice a month is 1 tablespoon a gallon.
If you can get pine straw from someone, you can add it to your soil and as it breaks down it'll lower the alkalinity.
I live in the Blueberry Capital of Mississippi. There's even a Jubilee for it, with a Queen and Princess.
