Pollination of blueberries
I recently purchased a Highbush blueberry plant and it is going crazy with flowers - but only just now have I read that I need to have two plants to get a good amount of fruit. Some of the flowers have just started to fall off, but there doesn't seem to be any fruit growth happening (its only a couple of days though). I have a couple of questions:
- Do I really need multiple plants?
- Can I have two Highbush's or do I need to get another one like Rabbiteye?
- Bees are few and far between now (might get lucky to see one a week), can I pollinate them myself with a paintbrush or something?
Thank you everyone :)
