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.

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!
