If it's planted too deeply it will struggle to flower BUT I suggest you DONT dig it up ,wait and see if it will  flower as it gets older and bigger.

I thought woodlice lived on eating rotting wood and debris, could you maybe have vine weevil in the soil in the pots?

First one looks like a laurel, 

the second one looks like the wild flower honesty, the proper name evades me. I like mine so leave them to grow, the seed pods eventually look like silver pennies.

I don't have any trouble growing my blueberries,

I grow them in pots because my soil is very alkaline they are in ericacious compost and I  feed with ericacious feed.

i also read somewhere that they don't mind shade the only thing that is important to remember is once the fruit is ripe you leave it on the plant for about a week before picking, its supposed to make the fruit sweeter. So having said this you must net the plants or else the birds will get to the fruit first.

its well worth growing blueberry bushes just for the glorious leaf colour in the autumn.
