question on blueberry shrubs

Posted by yippee1999 6/7 NYC (My Page) on

I have two blueberry shrubs and they had little white flowers and I see that many of the flowers blew off during recent high winds. Is it from the white flowers themselves that the blueberries are produced? Since the flowers fell off does that mean I won't get blueberries this year, or is there something else in the plant's "DNA" that I will still get blueberries, even IF the flowers are no longer there?

RE: question on blueberry shrubs

flowers will come off after pollination.sometimes they turn brown as they dry up. You'll know within a week or two if you have blueberry pollination as the tips where the flower blew off will turn blue and start to form berries.
