BLUEBERRY Plant not producing much fruit...why?

scuzzynuttyApril 19, 2011

Hello,

I have a blueberry plant in about a 10-12 gallon pot. I got it last year and it had so many flower blossoms not too long ago, but only about 5% of those blossoms are actually turning to fruit. My friend lives 2 miles from me and he got his blueberry plants the same time as me last year and he says he has a tremendous crop going and he's already picking and eating them. The 5% that are turning into fruit aren't even half mature yet. How can my friend living 2 miles away have a tremendous crop and I got barely anything :( What gives?

Simple answer, "a blueberry plant" is your problem. Blueberries have much better pollination if you have multiple plants, often of different varieties.
