Subsequently, one may also ask, how close do blueberry bushes need to be to cross pollinate?
Also, how do blueberries pollinate? To hand pollinate in your home garden, dip an artist's paintbrush into each of the open flowers on one blueberry bush to collect the pollen. Transfer the pollen to the open flowers on another bush of a different cultivar to pollinate the flowers. Reverse the process to pollinate the flowers on the first blueberry bush.
Similarly, do you need 2 blueberry plants?
Answer:Blueberry plants are self-fertile (each flower has the necessary male and female parts), however you still should buy more than one variety. That's because a blueberry plant produces more berries and bigger berries when it cross pollinates with a different blueberry variety.
Do Blackberries need to be pollinated?
Growing Self-fruitful Blackberries Self-fruitful blackberries can set fruit using their own pollen; however, the flowers do require pollinators, such as native bees, honeybees or the wind, to transfer pollen from the anther of the male flower to the stigma of the female flower on the same plant.
