What type of blueberry plants do you grow together for beneficial planting?

by FigTree

I want to grow blueberries this year but don't know which types you should plant together for maximum benefit of the plants. Which two have worked for you?

The Chief also let me know that he just bought three blueberry bushes for the season and got: Northland, Patriot and Blue Crop. <br/> <br/>Can&#x27;t wait for the berries!

Finally getting around to this! I got my plants at Swansons sale (going on til the 14th and you should REALLY check it out!). I&#x27;ve got Chandler and Northland this year, and a Chippewa that made it from last year. According to the Swansons handout, you should plant two varieties to aid in pollination, but it doesn&#x27;t specify any combinations. Chandler and Northland are both highbush varieties, and Chippewa is a lowbush.

thanks fp--!!!! best information yet! It is actually kind of hard to figure out and I want those blueberries to be sweet and juicy! I love the little mini blueberries like the ones you find in Maine, but not sure those do the best around here... OH! Also, just found out that there is a new blueberry called the pink blueberry!! very girly though :)

The Swansons handout is great because it describes each type for fruit, blooming time, etc .

Ah, I just saw this - does it not notify you of new content? I will consult my Swanson&#x27;s handout and get back to you!
