Also, do you need two blueberry bushes pollinate?
Blueberry (Vaccinium corymbosum) bushes are self-pollinating to an extent, but grow larger fruit through cross-pollination by a second variety. Both varieties of blueberries involved in cross-pollination need to have bloom times that are at the same time of the season to be successful.
Also Know, what can you not plant near blueberries? Other plants not in the Ericaceae family that can accompany blueberries are camellias (Camellia spp.), bearing early spring flowers in assorted colors; summersweet (Clethra spp.), bearing white or pink fragrant flowers; and fothergilla (Fothergilla spp.)
Similarly one may ask, how many blueberry plants do you need?
Whether or not you need at least two blueberry bushes to get fruit depends on the type of blueberry bushes you have. The two main types of blueberries are highbush blueberries (Vaccinium corymbosum) and rabbiteye blueberries (V. ashei).
Where is the best place to plant blueberry bushes?
It's best to grow blueberries in an area where water is readily available so you can keep their roots moist throughout the growing season. Raised beds or patio containers are good options for planting blueberries in areas where the soil is not ideal. Soil preparation is crucial to the health of blueberry plants.
