I am planning to plant several potted blueberries in Green Bay next spring. What do I need to do to ensure their survival over the winter.

You can take them into the garage for the winter. The pot should be soaked with water. If you expect the pots will freeze solid in the garage, it would be better to dig a hole and put the pots in it so the root systems are buried. Mulch or cover the shoots with soil.
