Bit of a Noob here...I bought my first Blueberry bush this season and have a few questions. I currently have it in a pot, until I can find a spot for it (and condition the soil).
I bought an Elizabeth Blueberry bush and it has grown a bit. However:
1) The leaves are a bit red. I noticed that they get 'greener' sometimes. What could be causing this?
I'm thinking it could be a temp issue, since it's currently in a pot and the weather has been very hot one day and cold the next.
2) I only bought 1 bush. Do I need to buy another bush to pollinate? If so, do I get another Elizabeth or will I need a different variety?
3) If I need a different variety, what is a good choice for Zone 10 and what is compatible with the Elizabeth?
I believe I need to get a variety that blooms around the same time (late season?) and with low chill hours.
4) What other factors need to be taken into account when selecting a pollinating companion?
Thanks in advance,
