Blueberry – Cross Pollination?

Q: I’ve been researching Powderblue blueberry bushes. I need four plants to get a good harvest for my family. Do I need to also purchase a different variety for cross pollination?

A: ‘Powderblue’ is an excellent choice. You’ll get better yield if you have another variety nearby. Since ‘Powderblue’ berries ripen in mid-summer, a variety that ripens later would extend your harvest. How about two ‘Powderblue’ and two ‘Ochlockonee’ blueberry shrubs? Both bear heavily.
