Highbush blueberry plants are self pollinating but cross-pollination produces a better crop creating larger berries and larger yields. It is best to plant more than one variety with the same bloom time and plant 4 to 6 feet apart. Moderately drought-resistant, requires acidic soil. Can purchase soil acidifier from any garden center.
Produces nectar and/or pollen, thus providing nutrition for bees in early summer.

The benefits of bare-root trees
Our trees are delivered with natural bare roots which have been dipped in hydrating gel prior to shipment to keep the roots moist and healthy. As their abundant, fibrous roots aren't confined by a container, bare-root trees get off to a more vigorous start compared to containerized roots which typically need more time to adjust to transplanting. Bare-root trees typically surpass the size of larger containerized trees in only a few years.
