BLUEBERRY - BLUE ROSE
A highbush selection requiring 750-1200 hours of chill, it does best on cooler climates. Tall growing and extremely vigorous this blueberry is prolific. Start picking before Christmas and have blueberries into March. Most important. Blueberries require an acid soil with a pH of 4.5 to 5.5. They also require a free draining loose friable soil. They dislike clay heavy soils. To aide the successful establishment of bushes it is best to build up beds by incorporating peat moss and garden soils at a 50/50 ratio. Peat is preferred as it is naturally acidic.

Question & Answer
Should I plant these alongside another variety for pollination reasons ?? or how do I pollinate them?? it says its beneficial/ From: ORANGE NSW
Yes that would be fine to plant them alongside each other and will work with pollination however they don't need to be planted perfectly alongside each other they just need to be in the same vicinity. Bees and insects should pollinate them for you and hand pollination should not be needed. #BlueberryBlue2572
