self-frution

I had no idea that a hand pollination was necessary for growing blueberries. The blueberry flowers in the yard have already fallen down. I think it's too late:-

Two years ago I started growing blueberry trees and in this Spring I successfully made a cutting propagation for it. I thought I could expect a big harvest in this Fall.

However, it seems that I overlooked some important issues. I happened to come across an article about growing blueberries and found that you have to plant different kind of blueberry trees all mixed up or make them pollinated by different kind of flowers.

I still have a long way to the harvest.
