You need to have two different blueberry varieties for effective pollination. Like varieties will pollinate each other but the berries are generally smaller and problematic. When two different varieties of blueberries cross-pollinate, you get nice large plump blueberries. They also prefer soil with more acidity or a lower pH value. I show you how to best address that need.

  • I looooove your YouTube videos I learned so much. I have a question. For a preventive pest spray can I mix Epsom salt neem oil, baking soda and dishwasher soap. I seen the video with the last three in one gallon sprayer and I was wondering if you can add to that the one tablespoon of Epsom salt just to save time and spray every two weeks. N also can the spray be use on all vegetable (squash, cucumber, tomatoes and peppers). Thanks for your time
