Hi all! So I was thinking of trying to grow blueberries on my balcony. I understand that blueberries do best with cross-pollination. I don't totally understand how cross-pollination works....should I get two pots of the same variety blueberry, or is it better to get two pots that each hold a different variety of blueberry?
Also, if I keep these plants in one gallon pots, after 2-3 years of growth, how many blueberries do you think I can expect...enough to fill a few standard blueberry containers? Once the blueberries are picked, will a new crop of berries grow on the same stems? Or once the berries are produced and then picked, is that it?
I understand that blueberry plants also give nice flowers in the Spring, and vivid leaf color in the Fall, so it seems to me that having blueberries is a win/win/win. You get flowers, then the berries, and then beautiful foliage! ;-)
Btw, some varieties I am considering are Patriot, Liberty and Earliblue.
