It does mean you need some more blueberry varieties - if the pollination is not good enough for you. Blackcurrant are not Vaccinium and so will not pollinate blueberry.
If there are any in the neighbourhood - that might do!

Question from Val Hall

In forum: New to gardening

I am planting up a new area of my garden with fruit trees and bushes, I have bought a Vaccinium corymbosum 'Patriot' blueberry and on research it says "For optimal pollination and yield plant three different cultivars."
Does this mean I have to get more blueberry varieties or can this be done with say blackcurrant for example?
Sorry if this is a silly question but I am new to this type of gardening.

pollination across genus

Question from Bea

In forum: Trees and shrubs

No one seems to know this - will genus vaccinium cross pollinate with others of the same genus, different species e.g. blueberry with bilberry?

v. vitis-idaea var minus, anyone?

Question from Joanna Sheldon

In forum: Vaccinium vitis-idaea

I'm looking for the very dwarf North-American vaccinium vitis-idaea ssp.minus -- or seeds thereof. If anyone can give me a source (seeds can be from anywhere of course), I'd be grateful.
