You answered my questions about blueberry plants which included the fact that I needed to plt at least 2 plts for cross-poll. I didn't know that. 1st plt - Jersey - pltd in March. Got another Saturday. Thought was Jersey, but got home an saw it was Duke. Did I mess up? Is it okay? Each grow different sizes. Pls tell me it's okay. Tks.

You did just fine. Although blueberries are self-fertile, cross-pollination produces the best fruit crop. Now that you have two different cultivars of blueberries in your garden, you'll get more fruit from each of your plants. Enjoy!
