Spartan Blueberry Bush Pollination
Spartan Blueberry Bushs are self-fertile. You will get fruit with only one plant. However, adding an additional Spartan Blueberry Bush will drastically increase the size of your crop.

Hard to believe these plants are going to produce fruit this year or that they weren't planted this year. They are very small "bushes" and many of the stems are turning brown.
So far so good with this blueberry bush.
It was just planted this spring and is doing well. It arrived on good condition.
Planting & Care
Plant in full sun: The Spartan Blueberry needs plenty of sun, so be sure to select a place in your yard that gets 8 hours of full sun a day. Planting in the East or South side of your yard will ensure your berries get plenty of sunshine.
Planting Instructions: You can plant your Spartan Blueberry in your garden or in a pot. Either way, you'll need to make sure your soil is light, well drained and acidic. Sandy loam soil with a high content of organic matter works best. You can add compost and acidic soil to your garden or pot soil for the best results. If you plant in your garden, be sure to leave 5ft. of space between your other plants. Birds love blueberries too, so make sure you use a garden net to get the most out of your harvest.
Watering: Spartan Blueberries need to be watered once a week. They typically need 1-2 inches of water each week, so if you're experiencing a dry season, you might need to water more than once per week. Don't overwater the bush. The roots are very shallow and can easily drown.
Fertilization: Once you see leaves on your plant, you can add some acidic fertilizer. After that you won't need to fertilize the Spartan Blueberry bush until it begins to produce a harvest. Once your plant is fully mature, you can fertilize it once a year in June and again in the fall if it didn't harvest well.
Pruning: You won't need to prune your Spartan Blueberry bush until it begins producing blueberries, which usually occurs in the 3rd season. After that, you'll need to prune away the lowest, non-producing limbs right before the harvest each year.
Pollination: The Spartan Blueberry is self-pollinating, but you will greatly increase your harvest with cross-pollination. Plant with other varieties of blueberry bushes for large harvest yields.
When to pick: Your blueberries are ready to pick and eat when they fall right into your hand. Once you see the huge blueberries turn blue, wait a week and then test to see if they're ready. Simply run your hand across the berries. If they easily fall off without plucking, then they're perfectly ripe. Blueberries will last 1 week in your fridge, but you'll need to freeze them if you don’t eat them in a week. Frozen blueberries are delicious in smoothies and the Spartan Blueberry holds up well to being thawed out.
