-Smaller Fruit Pollination Guide

Honeyberries are extremely cold hardy berries that grow in a wide range of soil types. Typically two or more different varieties are needed in proximity to cross pollinate for fruit production.


Blueberries are somewhat self fertile, but yields per plant will be greatly increased with the presence of multiple other varieties in the same vicinity.
Raspberries will cross pollinate within the same variety with no problem. Having bees in the area to do the work can help with higher yields. Some pollination can be done by wind, but it is estimated 90% of pollination is done by bees.
Strawberries are self fertile. They rely on the wind, bugs, and bees to cross pollinate between each flower.
Jostaberries are self fertile and will produce fruit on their own without the need of other plants for cross pollination.
Cherry bushes are typically self pollinating but will have bigger yields if other cherry bushes are in the same vicinity.

The 2020 Apple Tree Guy season is in full swing and busier than ever. Normally we have a set weekend for the annual pickup for bare root orders. This year’s planned weekend was on May 16th. We are in the process of working out the details to extend that window of pickup from one weekend to a couple of weeks. This would prevent the gathering of groups of people (we had 300 to 400 people in one day last year) and help slow the spread of this nasty virus. Check back here for more details as they become available. If you have an existing order we will keep in contact via Email/phone once details change. Upon pickup we would ask you to either stay in your vehicle or to stay at least 10 feet away. Thanks for understanding and please stay healthy!
