Hello,

I bought a Berkeley blueberry in the spring. It has no fruit this year but I have only learnt that some blueberries need to be planted in pairs because they pollinate one another.

Is Berkeley blueberry self pollinating? If it's not, do I have to buy another Berkeley plant or can I pick another variety and they'll still pollinate one another and have fruits?

I'll appreciate your advice.

Kind regards,

Agnes

What you need is another blueberry that flowers at the same time as your, it can be another variety. If you wait until your blueberry is flowering next year you can try to find another one in the garden centre which is also flowering at the same time. But check that the plant you buy hasn't been forced to flower early. You will have the most success if you have 3 blueberry plants, if you have the room.
